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.

Subject: fat sunvisors
> 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.
> If I replace the visors, my question would be - how do I attach them?
What is that fastener, anyway?
