Fulton or Comet sky shield / visor
Permalink  
 


I recently purchased two vintage visors and hope to sell one but I am unsure how to mount the one I am keeping.

Does anyone have any photos of how the mounts for the vosors physically attach to the vehicle ? Do they require nuts and bolts or screws or pop rivets ?

I still have to curl the edges and drill holes in the mounts I made.

They are typically drilled and bolted to the drip rail but you also need a mount that sandwiches to the center glass of the windshield too ,
otherwise as soon as you start to get up speed, you'll rip the visor and the drip rail right off the truck..

 Okay bud. Chris you got me, lol, please tell me what do you mean by sandwiches to the windshield. I have seen some of the split window stuff with a support to the center post but I can't recall anything supported directly to the glass. That doesn't mean they didn't, lol it just means I don't remember seeing one, is all.

Cuddles are you thinking of your truck for the visor bud, just curious is all. That is a nice truck and putting a visor on is a big decision, sort of thingy. To do it properly you have to drill holes and at that point i would check into what there is in todays aftermarket for that truck. You will still have to drill for the newer one but it will weigh 60-70% less with some suttle airflow built in. I didn't think about it until Chris posted and mounting to the drip rails caught my attention. Your truck likely didn't need the drip rail mount stuff is all and it is a nice original condition truck.   pm sent

that rusty looking piece clamps onto the gutter. Like others have said it has to be supported in the middle to the bar between the windshield halves. It has to be secured really well and at the right angle or the car that's fallowing you will be wearing it. Where they clamp onto the gutter the paint usually gets damaged. Do what you want it's your truck but I'm with Rick on his points

Thank you all. I guess I won't mount it. I did fab a center mount but if I can't do it right, I won't do it. Thank you again for helping.
