In the works: fiberglass trunk installation, 2 6.2 widescreen tvs in visors
Hmmm... lets see... how about 2 6.2" widescreen tvs?? How are you making out with that? Are you going to be able to run the wiring through the hollow part like the OEM wires?

yeah i know it was too obvoius. I dont know about wiring yet, right now im working on fabrication. i know that there is quite a bit of room under all of the trim and the carpet considering all the trunk wiring is ran underneath of it. i might drill a hole, i might not, depends on if i want to run the wires

Default Visor disassembly

I am truly inspired by your recovering effort. We own 3 SSE'* (92,93,94), all with covers that are coming apart where the main visor rubs against the secondary visor. These have lighted mirrors with covers that look a little different from yours. I have removed the visor from the car. I had to cut the wire. Can you say how to get to the connector, so I can put it back in a better way?
I have removed the lighted mirror assembly from the visor. I hope it will go back in again.
I have pulled out the steel support rod from the bracket end, but don't see how to remove the small rod from the other end. Can you tell me how?
Also the visor body seems to be a clamshell construction. Do you know if it pop apart to release the fabric seam that is inserted into it?

Most of your questions can be answered here: http://www.geocities.com/autotronics...isor_intro.htm

The connector for the lighted mirrors are usually taped and stapled to the headliner. The corner of the headliner can easily be pulled down to get at the connector with the A pillar trim removed

You can click on the thumbnail images in the tutorial to enlarge. The locking tabs to get at the fabric seam are labeled as is the smaller pivod rod (as I called it).
