My sunvisors are in lovely cosmetic condition but the foam padding inside them has turned to dust. You can see in the photo that yellow powder falls from the mirror on one side. I cant think of how to repair them as they have plastic welded edges. Has anyone else found a solution to this problem? Alternatively are there new ones available or are they the same as any other Alfa?

These are similar to the ones in my 69 Porsche. I was successful in cutting the vinyl with a sharp hobby knife along the welded seam. I fitted several layers of cardboard, covered in thin wool felt to the metal frame and glued the seam with vinyl glue. I was able to fit a new mirror into one visor. If done carefully enough, it will be difficult to see the repair. It took me quite a long time but, if new ones cannot be found, this is a possibility.

Sunvisor repair

Larry

Thanks for your suggestion. Sounds to me like that could work. I will take one off this weekend and have a good look. I don't think they are available new.
