    Recovered my sunvisors (pics)

    because of the bad weather recently i decided since i cant do anything to my car mechanically i could do something cosmetically, i reupholstered one of my sunvisors and will be doing the other shortly soon, heres some before and after pictures of the completed passenger side and un completed drivers side,

    the black is iron on patches to cover up sun damage to the edge of the visor,





    first time i've ever done upholstry before, i used leftover charcoal vinyl i bought to make a dash cover

    Well you're learning.... Next time try doing your stitch work with the vinyl pocket inside out and tighter stitches. Then when you are done turn the "pocket" you made right side out, this will hide your stiches. Then slide the pocket over the visor and close it up.. You'd be amazed how it will come out even for a novice. Good luck.

    Agree! Could even add some piping between the stitches too if the OP likes.
