Sun Visor for a Savannah

I made a sun visor for my Savannah, works well and I use it a lot.

It's made from that corrugated plastic material, much like corrugated cardboard, that's often used for signs.  It's light weight and rigid.

Along the top is epoxied a length of 6mm (1/4") aluminum rod.

Then I added wraps of .016 aluminum epoxied on to give more strength.

The hinges are heavy duty plastic clothes pins, riveted to the lining above the windshield.  They give a friction fit that works well and the visor is easily removed if necessary.

A tab of velcro holds the visor up against the overhead switch panel.

View from eye level inside.  Still good visibility of the flight path ahead.
