Visor for a 60-66 c10

I dig accessories and couldn't find a visor that looked like it fit so I cut up a baseball cap visor I bought at Turlock for $30







I'm going to make a polished stainless center piece for it later

Re: Visor for a 60-66 c10

In 1962 there was an accessory plastic visor that clipped in the windshield rubber on the inside of the cab. Talking to guys the plastic dried out quickly, cracked and fell apart.

Re: Visor for a 60-66 c10

I like it! I couldnt bring my slelf to chop up an old visor. I sold a few of those for 200.00 ea.!
But if you only paid 30 bucks there wasnt much to lose.
Looks real good

Re: Visor for a 60-66 c10

You would think that someone with some metal work savvy could make up a visor that would fit & look good on the the 60-66 trucks. Maybe it's just a matter of time, I think they would look so cool with a pair of spot lights...Vernski
