    I’ve had this on the back of my bench for a few days. Tom gave a guy in Belgium $1000 for it. Converting to RHD. Luckily, tom had a portion of his original in addition to the complete unit from Belgium.

    Check out how small that passenger visor is. I replaced the plastic with a cut down WW unit.

    All the chrome and aluminum polished nicely.

    I was just messing around yesterday,  things went smoothly, I was excited to finish this morning. Short visor (10 3/4″) riveted together with cut down plastic.

    Check out the profile and screw depth difference on the lower edge. Base in the foreground look rookie-built.0A9EE0D8-5FD0-4F3B-AD35-F6FA173760B7

    To reverse the visor and mirror I had to drill/tap a 5mm for a set scew on the opposite side.

    And a new set screw dimple in the chrome shaft for the mirror.

    👏 awesome. I was worried it would get ran over by a fork lift or something.
