    I bought a visor on ebay and it has no bolts or bolt head caps. Does anyone have some, know where to get them, or something you can use similar?
    Thanks

    I have been thinking about using some short sheet metal screws with the bolt heads. Anyone know of caps to fit like 1/2" or 9/16" bolt heads?

    i like that idea, the only thing id do is put perhapes some silycone in with them bolts to seal it up nice, maybe if your good put silicone of your choice (color) on the bolts and mold it to look like caps, id say go for it, but i seen the way you put one on, and you drill a hole and put like a drywall screw insert in the roof and then put the screws in, i did this when i converted to the big 6x9 mirrors on my truck from the gay little ones that pissed me off, but they gave it style, but my new big ones give it more style. but good luck on that. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I can't imagine needing something like 9/16"!!
