Black sun visors

Recommended Posts

Did any of the Corrado's come with black sun visors?

 

If they didn't, has anyone fitted some from another car and if so which car did they come from?

 

Seen some tacky looking leather covers on ebay but I not liking the look of those and dont fancy covering mine.

No C's came with black visors,mine have been dyed,and have lasted well.

There was a thread on VWvortex years ago,which told you what vw's came with black visors,and how to fit them(not a straight swap) IIRC it was a few cabriolet's

Nice

 

I wasn't sure they would take dye but they look good

 

I have seen some mk3's have them but they are a different fit and not cheap with the illuminating mirror

 

Like the center visor aswell, I have one of those aswell but also in grey

I have a set out of a TT that I was thinking of trying to fit at some point, I think the best ones are out a golf 3.5 cab

I would be interested to see if the TT one's fit, and they are half the price

I know this is old but you're still around so! Have a tried fitting those TT ones in the end? 

I too fancy black sun visors. Trying to decide between dying them or sourcing MK3.5 Cabrio black ones. Is it true these need Porsche 944 clips? 

Cheers!

FYI i had my sun visors trimmed in alcantera when i had the headliner done - they did it as a sleeve which was stitched over the top & i was able to simple click them back in place

I agree, any pics would be nice. I did think about this option has I have access to an industrial sewing machine. But, the part where it narrows down for the clip, I'm not so sure about how to pull it off...

I am still alive, just snowed under with work. I didn’t use the Audi TT ones I had as they were too long. I ended up using the Golf 3.5 ones, not a perfect fit either but close enough for me

On the Campaign, the trim shop at Karmann created a simple sleeve (in a silmilar way to goldfinger describes) using the same headlining material and stitched them along the top edge. Painting the grey brackets and connectors black in the process. You can still feel the light and vanity mirror underneath. I can put a picture up if you like, but it’s pretty basic.

I knew you were still around! Thanks for the update, now I can forget about those TT's. These MK3.5 look pretty good to me. What kind of clips did you used? That interior looks absolutely fantastic!

I would love a close up picture for sure, thank you for joining and offering. Making the sleeve is easy except where it meets the clip, that's the part that I'm not sure about. If I could see a close-up picture of this area, maybe that would help me figuring this out.. I'm thinking of dyeing the clips black to match and maybe a nice thin leather for the visors. Thanks!

I used a Porsche clip as it’s identical but already black. For the fixed side I had to trim the existing part a bit to get it into the hole but then it was kind of like for like I think, it’s been a while 🤣

Yes I guess it makes sense to use the Porsche ones if they are already black. Thanks mate!
