Default 99 Trans am sun visors tired need to be recovered or?

My drivers corner is floppy, the material is getting loose and they need to be recovered or replaced? I've searched and not found much other than a member in Florida that had somebody recover his - looked good but no details who did it- I presume was an upholstery shop. Are any manufacturers making a quality one? other than my split door panels this is my least favorite part of my interior and the floppy is bugging me! I DO NOT want to delete them!
gotta be some quality shades being made - anyone?

I couldn't find any vendors on this site to rebuild my visors, I hope you have better luck than me.

Here is the sun visor thread.

I listed the price in the thread but to save you the time, he charged me $75 and I paid the shipping to him.
He gave me a choice, did I want mine rebuilt or did I want to just purchase rebuilt visors he already had, I chose to have mine rebuilt.
The guy is honest and did business with him again last week, purchased a set of dash vents.
Two good purchases from him!

I understand what you mean now...same thing happens to me, but you can contact the seller and work with him on getting your visors rebuilt or he may have some already rebuilt. He is a nice guy and easy to work with...

I got the same message. My guess is he's looking to save on a few eBay fees which is fine with me.

Glad to hear you were able to contact him. My visors are two years old now and I have no issues with them.

It looks like she (the upholsterer) does a great job. Thanks for the great info, it will be perfect.
