REPLACING PLASTIC VISOR RETAINERS.

Got tired oc replacing/repairing those cheap plastic visor retainers on my convert.
Found these on ebay, a little pricy but in my opinion well worth it, didn't have to remove the inner moulding. Grab the base of the plastic retainer with a pair of pliers, pull and turn cointerclockwise at the same time and it comes off the screw. Cut off the screw as short as you can then drill a 1/8" hole in the same piece of metal that the now cutoff screw is in then mount the new retainer.

Good information! Also enjoyed trying to figure what I was looking at in your photos.

I can see why, 1st picture is chrome plated retainers mounted where plastic retainers were mounted, second picture is visors resting in new chrome plated retainers. The Desoto is on the lift with the convertible parked underneath, that's why you see a tire and a small blanket to catch any oil drippings.
