In the progress of interior pimping i modified my sunvisors and made a DIY!
enjoy :D

1. Comparison of sunvisors
Top= civic
Butom= VW GOLF 4 with mirror



2. Strip the VW visor (cut the side open)



3. disassemble the civic visor





4. Now you have to lay the wireframe on the VW visor core to see where you have to shorten the core

5. Open the core on top to get the VW hanger out




6. Cut a 4-5mm deep V in the core edge to hide the wireframe in there



7. Cut a filler out of a cardboard and put it in the open place



8. Mark on the Civic foam the pieces that you need for filling the empty spaces at the visor. Cut them out and tape them to the wireframe.

11. Ad 5-10mm extra material to the outline, cut it out, tack it with some needels and sew it together.





12. After sewing the cloth together turn the cloth from the leftside to the rightside. Put the new core in the liner and make shure you have a tight fit.






put a little bit of glue to the side where the cut-out of the mirror insert is.

13. Take needle and a strong thread to close the top of the visor by hand.

Sensitive content, not recommended for those under 18 Show Content



14. Now cut-out the cloth for the mirror insert (a little bit smaller than the insert) and glue the mirror in. (I used a hotglue)




and here is the final product!
