The chrome only has a few pits and the upholstery only has a few stains.
The entertainment is priceless.

I must have missed these Corvair parts buryed in 7000 ads for wheel covers, car covers and waterpumper parts.

I think the seller meant to say you could see the chrome in between all the pits.

I've been seeking a set of decent early vert visor swivels, but most of the ones I've seen look like these (or worse!) Anyone ever successfully re-chromed these? I assume they need to be split first, but I don't know how they come apart without destroying the pivot.
Cheers,

Isn't that wheel just a Grant? And it looks like he attacked it with Scotchbrite. Maybe he's hoping the recoup labour costs?!? My friend bought one vairy similar at a swapmeet for NZ$25... NOS.

Hey Ron in Indy, The visors on my 62Greenbrier GB basically fell apart. What's inside is a small piece of wood that's stapled to a bracket that rides the shaft. It looks to me that taking them down to the bracket and shaft and refinishing them can be done. I don't know if the EM's are the same, but I hope this helps.

Jim,
Here are a few pics of the visor swivels on my '63 spyder convertible.
I remember looking at these a while back, and it wasn't obvious how they might come apart. It's possible that the pivoting arm is just pressed into the socket, but I didn't want to risk prying it out and destroying the pivot. sad smiley
Cheers,
Ron in Indy

The Greenbrier if different, I see what you mean about the pits. I sure someone must have re-chrome them before.
