Red or Green?
« on: Jul 20, 2010, 07:37 PM »
I was playing around with MSPaint and with the black & silver color scheme, I tried both red or green for the T-visor. Mrs. D says that red looks better and I'm inclined to agree with her.
Does anyone know where to order or how to make a dark red visor?

What do y'all think?

I like the Red visor, and only thing I could think of would be to use a clear visor and use red window tint...or even red see-through chrome window tint...

I'm not really a fan of colored visors, but they work well with some kits. That said, Ajax and Ohl'd have the right of it, you pretty much have to grab some window tint and a clear visor. Walmart or any automotive store will have some.

Be sure, as i'm finding out, to get tint that will work with your visor material.. I have a rollf of house window tint that will NOT adhere properly to plexiglass no matter what I do.

Between the advise here on the forums and the multitude of automotive graphics places here in my area whose brains I can pick, I'm sure I'll get it right.

Be sure to use some type of dark tint on the inside of your visor if you go with a clear base visor. I tinted one with a dark mirror tint and it was still see through. Good luck with which ever color you choose.

are the only two I could find.
Both look like they'd need another layer or two (maybe 3) of tint to make them dark enough. Any idea how either would fit in a M-DSB Assassin bucket? I like the overall look of the Mercenary model but I prefer the angled cheeks on the Assassin

Unless you choose not to cut out the side visor slots of the assassin, neither of those would fit. Well, I suppose you could get two visors and trim the second to cover those two side panels. Honestly, I'd suggest just grabbing a clear welding face shield, which are large and flexible enough to cut to fit the Assassin easily, and hitting it with a layer or two of automotive tint.
