Blazer Visors-New-better than NOS & less $ than China

All brackets are from the same importer, so let's look at the visors. I had these made in the USA and they are top quality. The Walrus grain premium vinyl is really close to the original. See pics. The sewing is clean, smooth and uniform. The foam even feels better. These are really nice!
All "NOS" GM parts are not better! See the set I bought for way too much money. They have the wrong grain, cheap vinyl, poorly sewn seams and a mushy feeling foam and GM part #s/boxes.
I didn't take pics of the China ones (I can) because they are pretty bad. Much like these NOS ones.

I have this set ready to ship. The brackets are priced a little less than the BIG catalog/web sites and the visors are priced the same or less than the China repops.
$270 set shipped for both

Here's an original. They sell for close to the other prices and are almost always dry, hard, and with creases from age.

Yes. This set includes brackets and visors for $270. I only had a few made in black. Colors would take about 4-6 wks.

Sure. Pre-pay and I will have a pair made up for you "Special Order".
I also have a really nice pair of original parchment visors that you could have in place of the new ones, in a Blazer set, for $30 less.

Just let me know your choice.

I’ll send payment and I will go with the new set. Is your email your PayPal? The original don’t look as nice as the new ones you have posted. I know, I have a pair.

My PP & Email are the same. I will get them ordered immediately.
You are right. The new ones look better. Thanks, Frank

Re: Blazer Visors-New-better than NOS & less $ than China

Anyone else want a set in colors? One time only at this price and then only black after that.
Individual set up and shipping runs the price up too much on single color orders.

Re: Blazer Visors-New-better than NOS & less $ than China

There are a couple techniques to make it easier/better to install the visors onto the rods (new or used). I will send these along with the new sets.
If you request it, I will pre-install them for you at no extra charge. Just tell me you want them pre-installed.

Last call, if you want any colored visors. Let me know ASAP!

Re: Blazer Visors-New-better than NOS & less $ than China

I will need a set of parchment ones. Would the rods match the colour of the vinyl, or would we have to do that ourselves?

All brackets/rods are black, as shown in pics. I can still add parchment or other OEM colors to the order. After that, colors will be an additional charge & delay.

Re: Blazer Visors-New-better than NOS & less $ than China

Good News. We sold so many of these on this S/O that the company is going to do an immediate run of these for us. No normal long wait.
I should be able to ship these to you next week.
Thanks again, Frank

Re: Blazer Visors-New-better than NOS & less $ than China

*** Here are a few tips on installing visors onto the rods.
Mostly, be careful. Sand/smooth the rods with fine sand paper. A thin coat of lube helps, too. Press down on the visor and twist back & forth while applying pressure. Do not bend or damage the visor. Hold visors by the rod edge. Hardest part is getting the rod end to start into the sleeve.
