MG MGB Technical - Sun Visors MGB Roadster
|I am about to fit sun visors to my MGB Roadster, any help and advice would be much appreciated.|
How deep into the frame does the glass go.Thanks in anticipation. John Cook.
|Are you sure it's necessary? We both wear baseball caps in the roadster and they shield lower sun than any sun visor I've ever come across.|
|John.. I removed the sun visors in my MG because they kept interfering with the raising and lowering of the top. As Paul posted, wear a baseball cap (large beaked) and it will be more effective than the sunvisor,|
|Mine are keeping the sun off a box in my workshop.|
Imo, they're a waste of time.
|I've also removed mine. They interfere with vision at the best of times. You lose a good inch of screen visibility.|
|Low sun in the winter, combined with a wet road does make driving the roadster a bit dodgy. so I bought a set of visors. After seeing where they mount on the frame and the way they would interfere with the hood, I decided not to fit. ( sold em on ebay) Sun glasses and cap was the answer. Trev|
|I had visors fitted to my previous Spridget, they're smaller than the B visors as you can imagine and not much use anyway but they still got in the way of lowering and raising the hood|
you can see them on this photo of the car taken shortly after I got the car
|On my Midget I got a roll of tinted plastic which was about 3" wide and worked really well.|
|I fitted a shade-band similar to that when I got the ZS, after the other cars it was like driving a greenhouse. Why anyone would go for a panoramic glass roof beats me.|
