that's such a great colour combination - really does look very special

the door hinges are a really nice detail as well; can't quite tell from the pictures whether they're polished,chromed or just a brushed metal finish. look good though !


They are new repo hinges I have sanded the in a way to make them look brushed and then I’ll semi matt clear them

you've done great job on them

 

did you use the hinge assemblies from the standard visors or is it a complete bespoke solution ? 

 

i'd be interested in how you made them if you're willing to share that

I used the old visors and cut them up then traced the shape on some 6mm acrylic sheet to cut out with a dremel I then painted it and used the parts to mount them
