Visor Bow


Recommended Posts

Its basically an aluminum strip with a chain attached. It enables you to cut a perfect visor strip off the car.

How to build:

1)Select an aluminum strip about the same width and thickness of an aluminum yard- or meter- stick. You’ll want its length to be sufficient to cut the longest windshield strip you’ll be likely to encounter.

2) Obtain a length of ¼-inch diameter link chain, a few inches longer than the aluminum strip.

3) Drill a1/8-inch diameter hole at each end, in the center & ¾” from each end. Use a hacksaw to cut in slits from the end to the holes, wide enough for a link in the chain to fit sideways into the slots.

4) Insert one end of the chain (a link or two in), then use a pop-rivet or screw to lock the chain into the slot. You now can adjust the arch of the “bow” using the chain inserted (at various lengths) into the slot at the other end.

5) Clean the aluminum strip thoroughly before wrapping a colored vinyl tape completely and evenly around its bottom edge. This will provide excellent grip during the cutting operation, using this bowed aluminum strip as your blade guide.
