Thumbs up

yeah was thinking this myself...i got the headliner and sunroof slider redone them in black.

Here are some pics with the trim pieces and the visors re-installed. The A,B and C Pillars i used black Plastidip on them and they came out really good. The first pic has a lot of reflected light from the dynamat i was installing at the same time.

I redid my sun visors. I bought another one to do a how to but haven't got to it.
1. Rip all the fabric off.
2. Get some flathead screwdrivers and maybe a blade.
3. Start prying the visor apart. Its folded in half. You have to pry pretty hard. I pried a little the cut some of the spots. Be careful on the part that's thinner.
4. Once it is all apart it should lay flat. Take the mirror and hinge rod out.
5. Then I closed it back up and sprayed both sides and the fabric
6. Set the hinge edge down first then lay one side down then pull the other side on top.
7. Cut out the spot for the hook and fold it in and glue it down. Glue down all the edges inside.
8. Cut out spot for mirror in pies so it curves to the plastic.
9. Reassemble.
10. I used some kind of adhesive I had all the way around the edge and let it sit for a while

I know that was kind of quick but it worked beautifully

Here's the only picture I have

How about a longer sun visor

One annoying shortcoming of the sun visors is how short they are. They don't cover the sun on the passenger window if you flap it over full right.
Ditto if the sun is over your left shoulder, too short to block the sun at eye level.

And that little textured spotted tint applique in front of the rear view mirror doesn't block the sun and the visors aren't contoured to cover it.

The solution would be a longer visor or extension, if the extension wasn't ghetto.

dude that looks beast. I've always wanted to do this with my car but I don't think I would have the patience. I may just spray my interior with fabric paint
