Hey, with Emily going over to oz in about two or so weeks, I am going to have her buy us all the visors we need. I forget the colors you guys have so can you check in and let me know?

Sounds good. If you get bored I will be around until about 3 tomorrow if you wanna pay in person. The leather one's look to be 83.48. Kind of pricey but what can I say since we don't have anything here. The cloth are 68.77. This is american roughly after the conversion.

My friend over there priced a new set from the stealership and they would have cost over $300US to get them here! I will gladly fork up $84 for a clean install What nice thing can I(we) do for Emily for doing this?

do these visors have lighted mirrors?

do these visors have lighted mirrors? Good question! What I have found in snooping is the AUSDM mirrors do have lighted mirrors while the JDM visors do not.(Opposite that you would think!)

Info is limited at the time, but I will keep you posted as we move closer. It's hard for me to be in contact with my source over there due to my hours.

As for what to do for her.....hahah you tell me....I am always trying to figure that out. But don't worry, she knew going in that my $2800 plane ticket means she can spend a day tracking parts for me :)

If you can get a AUDM set for that I'd be pretty impressed. The new pair I got were tan w/lights and were ~300 clams, which is about the same as a pair of 95-97 USDM mirrors cost through CDan.

Alex,

Tan for me and cloth? What do we have now, kind of a cloth I guess?

I'll send you a PM as well...

EDIT: changed from leather to cloth :D

I don't really care whether they are cloth or leather, so long as the lighted mirrors remain. If they both have the lighted mirrors, I'll take the leather. :)

They are mirrored I found out. So yea, just paypal me if you want them and I will get it going...

Also, does anyone have thoughts on the round prefilters for the snorkel? I was wondering if they are cheaper down there.

They really don't do much. Even in the dusty conditions of utah it barely does anything. IMHO the best thing is the cyclonic filter box like the 80's already have. Just not worth the $ unless you want to be different. :twocents:

haha, sorry mirrored mirrors. Does not really explain much huh haha. Lighted indeed.

OK, I sent you money for the leather TAN visors. :)

Romer
12-30-2007, 11:12 PM
For if I ever find a Tan console, I'll take a set of tan leather. Please PM me where to send the cash.

Thanks for doing this.

Thanks

Alex,

Did you get my PM? Let me know :thumb:

Romer

My current visors are cloth. With the Oak Lexus leather the tan leather probably would look weird, so I will switch to cloth.

Thanks Alex

Romer. I actually have a tan console coming from a ebay auction I won about a week ago I was going to post it on mud but if you want it you get first dibs.... check your pm...

Hmmm...Good point Ken

I was looking at my visors on the drive up the hill yesterday wondering what leather would look like up there next to the "cloth" headliner etc.

I think cloth would match up better, and since it is what I have now, I think I'll stick with it.

So Alex, please change mine to cloth as well :thumb:

being that he only has a few sets, I don't think the leather was factory. We will see.

picture? Now you guys have me worried.

acon40
01-02-2008, 11:43 AM
Nope. But I am actually ordering a few extra sets so you can pick and choose when they come in if needed.

Hulk
01-02-2008, 12:09 PM
OK, right on!

Has the stuff arrived at a port yet, or is it still on a slow boat somewhere?

I have actually started to make some phone calls to get status updates.....not a fast process but I hope to have info for you guys this week.

Romer

Emily should be in Oz now, any updates on the visors?

acon40
01-18-2008, 11:20 PM
Yea, it's here third day over and she plans to contact them in a day or so. I will let you know when the call is made. between work, the house, three dogs and a few other things I won't be on much with her gone, but I will keep you posted. Sounds like such a fun place to visit.

I just realized I never Paypaled you any money for the visors. What did everyone decide...cloth or leather.....I'm guessing cloth. Was there ever any pictures? I fell outta the loop...sorry.
