I'd get the Rosen brand visors...they are bigger and of very high quality plus they block both UV A and B. I installed them on my Warrior II and very satisfied with them.

Look at the plane plastic visor, I think it was ~$58.

Piper-Plastic was 144.32, you saw the list price above of 346.77. Still a rape job for a piece of plastic, welcome to avation were getting screwed is totally normal.

Get a piece of plastic of the appropriate thickness and a color that you like either locally or at a place like Cadillac Plastic.  Cut it to fit your frame and mount with a dremel tool.  Drill it as required using plastic drill bits from the same source.

Cost will be a lot less, even with shipping.

Yea, I realize I was looking at the game show price, but still - even a $150 bucks is a serious rip off.  I agree with Jim, were it me I'd have fashioned two new ones out of some nice Lexan... course I'd have to risk having the wings fall off.

A friend who runs a glass shop made us a couple out of scrap pieces of smoke colored Lexan. Zero cost.

However, the wings will probably fall off.

aaa...Actually, Velcro can be used in structural applications that are hard to believe.  Submarine-launched ballistic missiles (think Trident) are solid fuel rockets, and control wiring from the equipment section to the nozzles, needs to be run externally down the fiberglass shell.  Would you believe the conduit is stuck on with Velcro!

Another hard to believe fact is that the nose fairing is made of laminated wood...like a fine rowing shell.  What's more, the entire heavy missile is lifted by this nose fairing when it is lowered into the launch tube.

This is not an April Fool joke!
