Product Details:
Name: Aluminum Mesh External Sun Visor for VW T1 (Old Beetle)
Description: Aluminum Mesh External Sun Visor for VW T1 (Early Beetle)

This is an external sun visor for all VW Type 1 Beetles. It is made of aluminum mesh with stainless steel bars and fitting brackets for the ultimate in weatherproofness. It fixes onto the front of your Beetle by drilling small holes through the upright portion of the rain gutter. You can use stainless stell sheet metal screws, threaded screws or rivets - provided (not provided).

The colored tape shown is placed for protective purposes only. While many customers like the look, it would be best to remove it and either leave it natural, polish it or paint it.

Visor Installation
With regard to fitment, the mounting brackets fit better on the rear of the rain gutter rib that runs down the side of the windshield (forward of the front doors). You will probably want to experiment first with temporary placement to find the optimal position. You can likely use small C-clamps or vise grips to temporary hold the visor in place. Be sure to protect the surrounding paint from damage.

If the visor fitment looks asymmetrical, you may need to tweak or twist it slightly to bring it into alignment with your vehicle. Obviously you would need to do this very carefully so as not to damage the visor. Do this at your own risk!

Important!!! Check the way the visor looks from both inside and outside the cab before drilling your pilot holes.

Decide if you wish to use sheet metal screws, or rivets (provided by yourself). The drill hole size would have to match your screw/rivet hardware selection. Once the holes have been drilled, it's recommended that you properly treat any exposed bare metal to discourage rust.

Attach visor and enjoy!

Note: Due the box size, these visors cannot be shipped outside of the United States. Even though USPS will return shipping rates and the purchase could be completed, the visor cannot be shipped to other than a U.S. address.

Price: $225.00
