[concours] S-III 2+2 Sun Visors

Hi folks. I am an active member on the E-Type and a ‘lurker’ on the digest
version of this one. Noting that there is not a lot of activity to produce
digests, would appreciate a reply off list.

How are the edges of the sun visors supposed to be finished off? Mine had
some kind of vinyl taping sewn on with small chrome/metal clips on each end.
They came back from the upholsterer without. What would a concours judge say
about this?

Thanks in advance.

mine isn’t original, but I don’t have any vinyl around the edge. I only go
in Driven but so far, no judge said anything.

I saw on the entry list that there’s going to be a couple of SIII at Amelia
this week end, don’t know if they’re 2+2, probably not… but I’ll take a
look.

I took a look at ORIGINAL JAGUAR E-type and it didn’t have any decent shots
of the closed S3 car. However, it did have a fairly good shot of some S2
visors and they didn’t appear to have any kind of vinyl taping. The shot
didn’t show the inboard edge of the visors, so that wouldn’t help much
about the clips.

Combined with Pascal’s answer, my guess is that the taping was an earlier
attempt to extend your car’s visor life.
