One thing stopping getting a WOF (MOT)

Post by kiwi »

A Sunvisor :roll:

Sunroofed 19TRS needs a sunvisor and yes I have a spare except its from a unsunroofed BX. Such a stupidily simple thing is preventing the TRS from becoming a road monster agin.

Dos it have to be a proper one or could you get away with fitting a vinyl sunstrip to the top of the screen

light travels faster than sound, thats why you look intelligent and then you spoil it all by opening your mouth !!!!!

I can not be completly missing and a vinyl sunstrip wont cut the mustard apparently.

You dont need a Passenger one apparently so I have taken that off and reverse fitted it, but I bet any thing that the vanity mirror will be more of a glare hazzard to oncoming vehicles...lol

Tell you what mate this year would have been the year to visit NZ! Severe lack of rain and clouds and sunvisor is the least of the worries cooking in the car, the sunroof has been tilted open more than usual. Miss having the luxury of aircon that was hardly needed last year :roll:

Your welcome to the sunshine, had a bit much of it this year :lol:

send it over then, I'm properly sick of winter now!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
