    Gettin back on the coupe after a long hibernation!!

    Made a visor for it. Didn't like the stock visor it was way too long.

    Fits great, mounts similar to the stock one, I'll add some more mounting points when I get the wood top installed.

    That visor fits the proportions of the car really well. Looks like you are getting close.

    Visor is proportional. Great work! (is it rolled {hemmed} at the leading edge?)

    Thanks fellas... I don't think I have the heart to sell it HRP... I've mentioned selling it several times to my buddy Jeff. He tells me I have to cruise it the same amount of time it took me to build it before I can sell it! Purchased the T April of 2004!! YIKES!!! :D

    Yea you've built several to my partial build!! :D

    It's hard to build one by yourself. Especially when you've never built one and have to figure everything out on your own. Learning curve!!! :)
