Default Sun Visor decals

Gents - I honestly tried searching, but the only post I found took me to a dead rennlist post....so....question How do you safely remove the ugly, yellow decals on the non-mirror side of the visor? (i.e., the airbag ones). I found these great stickers that covered the decals on the mirrored side, but the other side is simply hideous. Thanks much Cole

Short of it is, soak terry cloth in alcohol and lay on the sticker for 15 minutes and you can pull it off.
clean with a plastic cleaner. If leather you must be more careful. My plastic ones look OK, minor residue remains, but OK.
Renntech site still has pictures

Or buy replacement visors from a country whose population is smart enough to know not to sit 2 inches from the airbag at all times.

I tried the coverups its so hot in FL, that when I would put the sunreflector in my dash while parked, it cooked the decals off they would no longer stick coverups work great for the mirror side. as that never sees prolonged sun

I use the cover up's from the eBay guy from Canada. They work great and no issues with the hot Florida sun.

I've used the die cut vinyl cover ups on both my 986S and 997S. The worked great and are almost seamless from a visual perspective.

Bought them from the usual eBay source.

ps. Interior is black!

Sunvisors were Grey, coverups were Black. Used coverups on black mirror side and took off stickers on other side. This was a very good combination for me!

I removed mine some time back from natural brown leather visors. Worked out well and looks much better without all the legal crap on them. Since you have a black car perhaps your interior is black as well, so the cover up decals are the easiest solution.

I went the alcohol / 3m cleaner approach. It was a bit of a pain in the ***, but did get them off. Took me about an hour for both mirrors / both stickers. Can still see a bit of the outline.

I did the same. Looks much better but I still have some glue stuck to the leather. Partly because I could NOT remove the sunvisor from the car. I read in the Renntech thread that the visors "slide right off" and they do not, at least with the leather.

Any idea how to remove the glue from the leather without damaging it? I have tried a bit more isopropyl alcohol and some leather cleaner, but not great results yet.

Keep working at it, but with mild stuff. I recall I used Goo Off on the plastic--maybe you can try it on the leather.

I ultimately resprayed the black plastic portions with that Krylon plastic bonding paint (black) to cover up the sort of milky look I got from using brake cleaner on that area (hard on plastics). Better than new. (I couldn't slip my leather visors off either).
