Hello all I am now doing Visors for you. For these I have taken a class with a pro to teach me what he does then added my own twist. My visors are 100% like OEM. TO get your visors done I will need your cores and the total cost with shipping back to you is $55.00. IF you include more cores I credit $5.00 per core. This will help get your cost down. Here is a photo of an old unit and the completed unit. This is a sample so the color of stitching I use is matching to what you have. I can also stitch in what ever color you want as well. I have been asked to do a carbon fiber style and I am working on it to see if it is doable but as the material is more this will cost more. Visors from the Fierostore are at 99.99 pluse shipping so mine is at a 50% savings to you. Colors are Grey, Black, Tan and other custom colors as needed. You will have to add for custom molors. You can also purchase a headliner kit and visors for a total of $100.00 shipped. This will save you $10.00 over all. I use a special adhesive that is designed for foam type materials leaving you with a nice feel to your visors. The Visors with Mirrors will be returned without mirrors on them. WHen the visors were made they were a one shot deal to get in there. They are held in with a rubber grommet that I can not get out of the old visors with out cutting them.
Now The New
Here are the carbon fiber style that are able to go out. the total on these are 75.00 shipped
Here are installed Photos
Here we are in the up position. they fit in there nice an snug. The screw in the visor is to tighten the viser up to the bar so it does no fall
Here they stay up nice and tight. Why dont I like to add Mirrors as they put an extra space there and they gap the look when they are up. Also they will crease your headliner.
here is the side in the down position full shot
And here are the side
If you have questions please email me and I will do my best to answer.
Yes a core would be two visors. I am still up in the air on doing the carbon ones but if so you are looking at 100.00 for the two as the material is exspensive to get and there will have to be extra padding put in them as well as there is none on the carbon. THank you for the nice words as well.
Thats a good question. After looking at them I can see that the original design was strange. There is three seperate materials on top and the only way for them to have survived is to not use them. Since I want to make them alst I dont want to do these as I can see tons of issues with them that I do not like and feal that they can tear in the short run. I really want my work to last for a long time.
I will experament however and if I come up with a good design I will let them go.
Would you be able to do them in Vinyl? I would be able to send the material with the old visors. Not sure what kind of equipment you have available. I don't think a standard sewing machine would be able to punch through 4 layers of vinyl.
He there Triad thank you for the kind words. I had to look up Alcantara as I had no idea what it was. I am not sure on that one.
alafieros i dont think that I will be doing them in vinyl. I have three machines that I use to do all my work but with the vinyl that will bring some un needed chalanges that at this point do think that I will tackel. The key to a good visor is the material and the thickness and how it bends. I was going to try a set of carbon fiber ones but that is down the road after I figure out some of the logistics on it.
I am going to check into booth to see what happenes. I am going to test for a leather style as well. it just depends on what kind of backing I can find and cut and stitch. I will keep all posted on this.
Nice work you do there. Suprisingly in Australia the visors is one thing I have to change for Australian compliance. Seems the solid centre can cause nasty injuries if it is at just the right angle in an accident. Slices the old scone open. All our visors are made with collapsible centres.
ON this set they only wanted the logos on one side. but I can do them on booth for sure. Each Logo it 9,800 stitches if I remember correctly. Thank you for the kind words as well. I will sometimes go through a few sets before I ship oue out. I always tell myself if I will not put it in my car they I would not think that you would want it in yours.
Stupid question. I would be interested in a set of gray ones with the red Fiero logo, but what if my stock cores are broken (I.E., the little flap on the sides is torn off and flapping around inside the cloth...no pun intended)?
My black vinyl visors came in the mail yesterday. They are Niiiice! I'll post some photos as soon as I can.
Last summer I had installed a black vinyl headliner. The old cloth visors really didn't work that well with the new look. These new ones tie it all together. I told Tom this in a pm, it makes me feel like I have a new toy again.
I ordered silver logos on black vinyl and love them. The only thing that I would have done different would have been logos on both sides of the visor. What's another $20? I am not sure if that is available though.
Are there any options for people who don't have cores? Do you have extras? My car does not have any sun visors in it right now, and I need to have some made. I guess worst case scenario I could always run to the junkyard, but I figured I'd ask before I drove an hour and a half.
