recovering old sun visors, who does it?


Recommended Posts

I have two sun visors to recover, have the fabric and the border, would like to have someone do it, including the little leather piece on each where you grab it in the middle.

 

Yes, I can sew, but sun visors present problems that most other trim jobs don't, and I'd rather have someone do it who is a professional and has the specific equipment to do them.

 

I searched the topics but no luck.  Any suggestions?  Thanks David C.

Yes, we lost a valuable resource in L-B, that’s for sure.
 

 I used to be younger and have more hair, too!

The local upholsterer who did my interior recovered my visors and did a fine job. I would think that most people who do upholstery could handle visors.

I took mine to McVickers in Lincoln. Maybe it would be worth giving them a call. It was a dozen years ago they did mine, though, so maybe they aren't doping that any more.

My sister did the ones in my 30 Cadillac exactly how the original ones were sewn. Three sides by machine and the side where the arm is by hand. Plus made me dinner while I waited is a deal you can not beat.

I just noticed I never replaced the screws to original ones.
