Hey I’m new to the site. Have seen a few gen 1 Colorado’s with windshield visors and have been trouble finding them online. Anyone that can point me in the right direction?

Are you talking about the tinting the top few inches of the windshield?? If there what it is just have a tint shop do it they shouldn’t charge very much to do it.

I strongly recommend against visors. Putting holes in your roof is always a questionable tactic because the metal in the roofs is not galvanized like the fenders and doors are. Also, you'll end up stopping short on traffic lights because the visors block the view. You may even be far enough back that you don't trip the magnetic traffic sensor. I'd hate to see die of starvation because the light never turned green! Also, it's a 1970's look that died back in the 1970's. What's next: curb feelers and raccoon tails?

I'm not a fan of them either, even on the fourtys and fiftys vehicles. But, along with the dice and curb feelers you could add a refracting magnifier to the top of the dash to see the traffic signals. I think I've dated myself. Please send pictures if the install is successful.

Curb feelers! My dad drove cars with curb feelers. I think it’s time for a comeback.

Gusto!

Now your talking, curb feelers, oh yea! Let’s bring back the gas wars also, back to 15 9/10 cents per gallon. That is the cheapest I can remember looking out the window from the back seat at the gas station, while Dad was checking oil under the hood. If you were well off, you might have even had fenders skirts. Let’s not forget the ice cold bottle of soda from the Coke machine. Man, them were the good old days, nothing but memories now, but I love to talk about them.
