    Hi-

    What's a Amphicar without sun visors?

    With all the parts cars out there, some one must be able to part with a part
    such as sun visors (white or red).

    Please. (I will beg for parts.)

    On the matter of sun visors, please see the ever-growing Amphicar.net
    Universal Parts List Questionnaire Results at
    http://www.amphicar.net/partsinfo.htm and look for an entry by Arnold Hite
    on January 28, 2000.

    Hear me O web toed horde! If any of you KNOW of some parts substitution
    tips, please DO help out at http://www.amphicar.net/partstips.html. And
    folks who aren't overly fond of Internet forms or even typing can get a nice
    handy old fashioned form that they can print out, fill out by hand and mail
    to the Bilgemaster in something we oldtimers used to call an envelope with
    little sticky things called stamps at
    http://www.amphicar.net/library/partsform.txt.

    About using the VW Bus Sunvisors: I've been to several VW car shows
    searching for Amphicar parts. I spotted these sun on 1960's style VW Buses.
    They were the same style and just a bit longer. I thought the only problem
    to be that the mounting holes were a little different. There are so many
    old Vows that you can find any part you need from several vendors. I think
    I ordered from West Coast Metric. When I posted that substitution to the
    parts substitution data base, I hadn't installed the sun visors yet. The
    problem I have since discovered is that the VW sun aren't stiff enough at
    the hinge. Since the steel framing around the window tilts back a little on
    the Amphicar compared to the VW bus, the sun visor has a tendency to swing
    back in your face. Obviously I doubt anyone would be happy with my
    suggested parts substitution. Since I've already installed them I plan to
    fix the problem with a small patch of Velcro.

    Sorry,

    <<Hi all. Has anyone found sunvisors...>>

    JC Whitney catalog lists sun visors to fit 52-79 VW Bus for $40 a pair. These
    are described as having the support rods, however visors for 65-72 convertibles
    do not have them. Suppose someone could order both sets and return one (or
    both) sets if they don't fit correctly. Please let us all know.

    I ordered a replacement set from Hugh several years ago. They look like the
    originals with the exception of the mounting block. The three mounting screw
    hole pattern is reversed which required redrilling the holes. It covered the
    old holes. In the new catalog, part #12-46-37 Sun Visors - says identical
    replacement to original. Does anyone know if that means the mounting pad too?
