Sunvisor clip and windscreen panels for Convertible
#1
Hi team.
Can someone please post a pic of their convertible  sunvisor set up showing the small clip that hold the end of their visors please. My car was dismantaled when i bought it so I don't know how many of these clips I need. I read I need two somewhere but it is described as a centre clip and shows it has a centre divider. Also I would be interested in a photo showing the upholstered panels that sit on the inside of the screen too please. As for the outside edge, my car has no lugs on it or holes for screws so I presume the new screen will need to be sikaflexed in place like a modern screen and I will have to then sikaflex the chrome outer surround. Cheers

Ballaratcastle,

I am not sure exactly what you are asking for by clips, upholstered panel or screen. Here is a picture of the convertible sunvisor, visor the hook and swing arms. If you can clarify, I may be able to help answer you questions.

I think maybe your description is throwing us Americans off.
I have several convertibles and can get you pics. The center piece that holds the ends of the sun visor is a plastic part with slots for the rubber tipped ends of the visor to snap into. Not sure on your other questions.
Here are some pictures of the outer stainless that goes above the windshield. They are held on with nuts on the studs. You also have to put a strip of thick closed cell foam on the inside to keep the rain water out. The pictures show the old deteriorated foam. The picture with the tape measure shows the gap that must be closed off with the foam. Sometimes the brackets the studs are in break loose from the stainless and you have to get them TIG welded back on. They had tiny spot welds that were not very good.
The stainless pieces on each side are held on with big head phillips screws did not have a pic of them.

Thanks guys. Sorry yes we do use different words for describing the various parts of cars. Our bonnet is your hood, our guards are your fenders. Our windscreen is your windshield  The pictures are great thank you. I will be working on the car today and will take some photos of what I have got that I can't quite work out how to fix to the car.  The photo of the two sunvisor meeting in the middle did answer my question as I have two of that centre centre  clip saved in my CJ pony parts cart but I see I definately only need one. The stainless surrounds for the windscreen does have some threads missing I think. I spoke to an automotive windscreen shop who said chop the rest off and just sika them down but now I'm not sure. I'll take a photo of my windscreen frame as there are no lugs or holes to fix the side stainless covers. Cheers

No way to you want to cut the mounts off and try to stick them on. There has to be a rubber seal under the stainless or water just pours into the car and drips in floor and on dash. If you do not have a set I have spares. Can polish and ship but I am sure it would not be cheap. You should be able to weld a piece where the studs are located and put in new studs. I will get a picture of the foam I used and maybe a set of the stainless to show the stud locations. I can do a sketch also to send for you to weld yours back in. You might have the pieces that broke off and just not know it.

There is a small molded clip that is attached in the center to hold the sun visor ends, it has two sections for each visor to snap into, is that the clip you are referring to?

Yes exactly. I was reading the blurb on a parts site that said I needed two but it looked like it held both so that's why I thought I would check with you guys. Thanks.

Thanks David. I'll be at the factory where my car is stored in about an hour and will take photos of the parts I am trying to piece together for the windscreen. I have the 3 sections of stainless ( sorry thought they were just chrome) and there is the reminants of the black foam
 Is this foam available specific for the car of I just source a strip of some self adhesive foam like soundproofing foam I have for the firewall

Hi David. 
Here are the bits I have but I see one of the plates is completely missing not just the stud. I presume that piece is unavailable unless I buy the complete piece. Also the small lugs on the side bits have no attachment points I can see on my windscreen frame on the sides. Also not sure where the top blue panel goes.

The long blue part [ should be chrome ] goes inside up on the windshield visor brackets and center plastic mount screw to it
They usually rust so someone probably painted it.
It looks like your side pillar trims are broken - I have some good originals
Do you have these ... as I don't see them in your pictures
Item #FM-BS016B
Satin chrome brackets with polished chrome rods. Very nice fit and finish. Sold in pairs. Fits Mustang and Cougar Convertibles.
