Learjet45 Sun Visor Discussion

(Original thread started on 06-13-12 by Ron Rollo)

Check this gift of information out! I was looking on eBay for unrelated items and came across Learjet Sun Visors:

What's even cooler than this is that the seller took the time to give us the exact measurements of the visors: 11.030" X 8.94" X .125 Gray Acrylic  (The manufacture list them at 7" X 11")


I will not bid on these and I suspect that anyone with a CNC will not either. We can easily make these!

Yeah seen those a while back on eBay and picked up a set . . got them for the starting bid price of $27.00 . . one of the cheapest things I have found on eBay for the Lear. This seller has listed quite a few of these for sale.


I found some drawings for the brackets just not had the time to start working on them. I don't think they will be that complicated to make. Basically they bolt onto the visor, and tension holds them in the position that you place them on the rail.


I think a poly material like what Ron uses for the column heads might work. Ron might be able to cut these out on CNC. I will try to locate the drawings and forward a link to Ron in case he is interested.


I think 3/8in rod will work for the rail system. Brackets will need to be welded to the 3/8in rods so I can attach it to the sim shell. . at least on mine but that's not a problem


Also just for info purposes, there are two different sizes of visors for the Lear 45.



I found the link where the drawings are: offers the Lrarjet45 monorail sun visor system HERE

At least we have a source if we do not want to replicate these although pricey!
