    Can anyone tell me more about these headlight visors? They appear to be one piece but I have been known to be wrong. Does anyone have a set or know where to get them (if they are still available)? Any & all help would be appreciated.

    They kind of look like those stainless "bolt-on" visors...aftermarket type thing. I think Brockman carried em. Some other folks too.

    Well they are on a 40 Chevy 2 door sedan but they are not stock. I have a 40 I'm doing and like the look and was wondering who made them? Are the vintage? Are they still available? I know I wonder a LOT!:D

    They're new. I checked Brockman's site and he didn't have em. Night Prowlers? Mooneyes? That King Of Dice guy?

    Kool thanks. I went there and they have the chrome cats eye covers but not these. I do appreciate the quick response though.

    Ya I just like the look better then the one's that go inside the headlight ring. On the outside they actually look like they came this way. Therefore are more period correct...if you will.

    C'mon...at a car show, I spend 65% of my time in the swap/vendor area. After awhile you have everything memorized.:)
