This is my first Model T, a 1927 Coupe. I am trying to install a "replacement" sun visor.

I think the parts are actually for a Model A which can be adapted to the 26-27.

I would like to get some help from some of you who have installed this part.

Thanks

Alby,

I've installed a visor on my 26 Tudor, Same A pillar I believe. There are 2 #10 screws on each side that screw into the A pillars, then I believe 9 wood screws that are screwed into the underside of the front top wood. Vendors sell a screw kit for mounting the visor which I found useful since it has the special washers for the screws included. https://www.modeltford.com/item/50537MK.aspx It helps to have a someone hold one side while you work on the other.

Thanks

I did buy that kit from Lang's. But I can't figure out how to hold the fabric tight to the frame.

I also bought "corner brackets" pn 50537FB

I don't to know what to do with it and the folks at Lang's do not have any instructions.

Any help would be appreciated

I just looked at your car. I hope to have my sun visor look as good as yours. Your car is very nice

Recently did this on my 27 Tudor.Got the visor and screws from Snyders with instructions.Only thing I did different was to put a thin layer of padding on the top and bottom of frame to make the fabric fit tight.Not that bad of a job. Easier th.an you expect
