Hmm.... interesting idea. I'm doing an entire custom interior and dashboard and what not, but I haven't thought of making a sheetmetal or diamond plate visor. Looks like a new project! I'll keep you updated on my findings.It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Can't wait to see what you come up with and the dimond plate sounds like a great idea, and I love your quote "It's not what you buy, it's what you build"

Ya know, back in the day, all that kind of stuff was hand built. The production stuff these days has been fitted, wind tunnel tested, drilled for proper location... but it looks like everyone elses.
I like the idea of building your own, but use SmokeU's lead, and start with cardboard. Pull the headliner down to look for the double wall metal to bolt through, check the door swing, etc.
Also, something I found on my '89, if you run a visor AND a bug guard, they create a dead air space at the wiper blades, but only at speeds over 40.

Thankyou for that information, very helpful. And I don't even have a head liner(just bare metal) so I can see the holes. but what do I use to prevent leaking, some kind of silicone or adhesive?
