Sunshade Sunshade Tuning Not just for vintage cars The sunshade on the car

A sunshade is known among tuning fans who want to tune old VW Beetles, a VW bus or a Barkas B 1000. The sunshade can be seen as extravagant sun protection for classic vehicles. The accessories were popular at the time and had the advantage that they protected from the sun at any time of the year. The sunshade is still available today and gives the VW Beetle that certain something. But other vehicles like the Lada Niva, an Opel Vivaro & Co. can be equipped with it. Basically there is the possibility to get a sun protection for almost every vehicle. In the end, only the price decides about the project.

Against sunlight, cars use self-tinting windows or internal sun visors. Anyone who owns a vintage car, but knows another way to protect yourself from intense sunlight. With a sunshade, the lover can upgrade his precious classic stylishly and is not blinded by the sun. Unlike modern sun visors, a sunshade is not mounted inside, but outside. The classic accessories are useful in every season. It also protects against low sun in winter. The sunshade is available in different colors and is still considered a popular accessory among users of classic cars.

The sunshade was and is almost always made of acrylic and can still be purchased in different colors. The colored acrylic is usually bent and attached to an aluminum frame. Sunshades are installed at the top of the windshield. As a rule, the useful accessories are screwed on. So-called knurled screws can be used to lower the sunshade. A reduction of a few centimeters is possible and ensures adequate glare protection. And as already mentioned, the outer sun visors are still available today for lovers of classic and sometimes up-to-date cars. As a rule, sun shades are increasingly being mounted on historic cars. Modern vehicles almost do not use the sun chutes. An exception are modern trucks. Trucks have large windscreens and can benefit from adjustable sunshades.

Sun shades - what advantages do they offer?

The exterior of the windshield mounted, adjustable sun visors, bring the following advantages:

  • Glare protection in deep winter sun
  • Glare protection in intense sunlight, no matter in which season
  • extravagant and stylish car accessories
  • can be used in the tuning area
  • gives the car an individual style

  1. Nice article!
    The original CORNETT sun visor is always made of acrylic glass (4 possible colors)
    and has a TÜV certificate for the material. H approval is also no problem, since the sunshade is listed as a contemporary accessory!
