UK all black sun visors!

I know itís trite and vain, but ditching that hideous SRS decal for some all black goodness has made me so happy.

It sounds like OP ordered new visors (not sure).

Looks like there are a few different options out there for removing your decals. I haven't tried any of these yet, but am definitely going to....

There are two torx bit screws holding in each visor. Remove the screws, gently pull the wiring down until you see the plug, undo, reverse for install. Itís exceptionally simple.

I picked these up off of ebay UK from a seller willing to ship to the US. A cheap way to make me happy, I spent $65USD for the pair (shipped). 👍🏽

Just FYI for anyone wondering, I used isopropyl and a paper towel to soak and remove the warning labels.

See my build thread for proof.
