    After years truck driving the thing I miss most is the exterior wrap round blue sun visor. Any ideas if they can be bought . Or made. If so where could I buy the plastic. O k, I know it's wetland or rile atthe moment, but trust me, the sunny weather is very very near,:Eeek::Eeek::Eeek::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    You can buy Acrylic ones which fit externally but they are over £200

    All old Mercs had them fitted in Germany. All old Spanish trucks had them fitted. The only ones I have seen are specific to new trucks and damned expensive.
    Its a bit like the Merc dog kennel engine cover I was after. Have seen loads of them till I wanted one, then all gone. I finally got one made when I had the makeover. Looks like I will have to try and get a visor made....but where.

    Get an A-class MH. You are so far from the windscreen that the sun never reaches you :Laughing:

    It does when you have the windscreen from an Iveco Superstar.

    Dave, slightly OT, but picking up on your first post; do you have details of where you bought your dog-kennel cover from?

    Been looking for one of those myself and nothing so far.:cry:

    I had it made by CaraVancare in Birmingham when they did the re upholstery. I had it made from leather to match the upholstery. It made a huge difference to reducing engine noise and then I stapled carpet underlay on the underside of the dash in the engine compartment. I cant hear the engine running now.
