Trying to fix the existing sun visors is a waste of time and effort.  New
ones made to original specifications are available for about $20 each from
Moss, and other suppliers, and include a new metal arm.  For less than $3
more you can get new spring washers, and nylock nuts.  My local British
parts supplier keeps a set in stock on the shelf.

> The sunvisors on my 78 Midget are far too "thick", that is, the foam
inside has apparently disintegrated, leaving me with visors that are about
1.5 inches thick.  A bit much, seeing as they are directly at eye-height!
the vinyl on the outside is perfect, so I have been hesitant to cut it open
to replace the foam with something thinner.  I have contemplated the notion
of injecting the inside with "something" that will dry solid and flat as I
mold it after shooting it in.  Is this idea nuts, or has someone tried it
already?  If so what product did you use?  I have considered using a can of
"Great Stuff" foam insulation.

What is that fastener, anyway?
