sun visors

Can anyone help me find replacement sun visors without 30 million(really 3) warning stickers on them? I know it shouldn't be a big deal but they just piss me off. I tried peeling them off(unsuccessful) and steaming them off left a gluey mess. If anyone has any tips on how to cover them or replace I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Joe

Re: sun visors

you really are a sensitive person keenyjj !!

no sun visors with stickers on.
no speed limiters.

all of these things are put on by the manufacturer to keep you safe and you dont like them.

whats your thoughts on the airbag and anti-lock brakes just outta curiousity ?
actually i never heard of anyone trying to remove the warning stickers from the visors.
but i can say this. if you steamed them off and a glue was left behind than all you have to do is fine a solvent that will remove the glue but not bleach the vinyl and you are set.
try rubbin some gojo or somethin on the glue !

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !

Re: sun visors

Airbags? Love 'em! Anything that keeps my teeth from being permanently embedded in the sterring whell is all right in my book. Anti-lock brakes are a great thing for most drivers. Myself I prefer a controlled skid. I didn't learn how to drive with them and when they have went off they scared me. The nosie made me think something was broken. Not good in sand, especially. I tried the solvent thing and it left behind discoloration. I tried covering that up with an iron on Ford oval and I burnt the heck out of it. Now I'm trying to find new ones altogether. Thanks for the input.

Re: sun visors

not good, discoloration is bad.
you could always get a head liner and cover them with a piece of that upholstery.

Re: sun visors

What about getting custom sticjers made such as the name of your truck. Or that upholdtery thing would look good.

Re: sun visors

Thanks for the input. I ended up going to walmart and buying some black felt fabric and spray glued it on. Looks really nice.
