Upgraded Sunvisor -- Rosen

Anyone looked into these??

This is similar to what Ward is putting into his Icon's......see pic.

Here is link to site with their automotive version (they make aviator sunvisors).

http://www.rosenvisor.com/auto/index.asp

What would the mount be for the D90 in terms of the vehicles listed, ie Ford etc. as listed on their PDF???

Can someone show me a picture of what the OEM sunvisor looks like at the mount, ie 1 screw or 2, what is distance between screws, what is size of screws??

I can then use that information to try to find what is closest.

No truck in front of me, but the stock visor just attaches with two screws. There are different windshield frames, one has sheet metal screws holding the visor into speed nuts, the other has M6 machine screws which thread into rivnuts. Either way, they just attach to a little sheet metal bracket on the windshield frame, so you out to be able to easily modify it for whatever you want to do. Keep in mind the stock visor doesn't swing out, so there is no "pivot" like on most visors.

Thanks Jim........can someone snap a picture of this and give a measurement of how far apart the two screws are???

These new sunvisors come with a pivot on the mount that allow the whole visor to slide out and down and even in front of the windshield.

I've got your pics. Shall I e-mail them over to you? The mounting screws are 13 inches apart.

Inches. The mount that holds the visor to the body of the vehicle has one screw/bolt on each end. There aren't two fasteners at each end. Pics on the way.

No, not 13mm - because they don't swing toward the window, they are just hinged at each end of the visor. I would think it extremely easy to devise a relatively nice looking adapter given the mounting points which are there.

I think I'll have Len make an adapter and then fix it to that......Len?!?!

Follow-up Post:

Thanks for the pics Abe! I have the people at Rosenvisor looking to see what is closest in size and then will have Len make a mount for it it and see what it looks like.

Any way you can give me rough measurement of size of the OEM visor you have, ie width and length??

Thanks again.

They are $280 for a pair including the visor lens and the mount.

The visor is 11 by 9.5 inches so I am trying to see if they can make one a little longer so it is a better match.

I will order a set and send them to Len who will try to come up with a bracket (flat bar) that will bolt to the existing holes and offer an attachment for the new visor.

Any other ideas or suggestions welcome on attaching it but I thought that would be best as it covers the holes and offers to good points of fixation without drilling new holes.

nikojo,

Are you going to go with the 19 in measurement instead of the full 22.25?

Yes. I'm going to see if they can make the visor a little longer yet avoid hitting the headliner light or mirror mount. Even if the visor is short it can be extended almost another 6 inches.

I may even like it a little shorter for that very reason.

Is that what you meant??

That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm interested in a set if they can make them to your specs.
