If you guys know anything about the Platinum windshield visor, please reply to this. I was wondering if there is replacement light housings that instead of amber are clear. I dont want to lose the visor because IMO i think the visor is what makes a platinum a platinum.

I know but gosh *&^( i just cant bring myself to painting them and then doing that cuz its just not as clean as if you had the clear housings, then paint matched them and had the amber LED's under it....I think that would look so much better.

I found my Platinum sitting just north of Omaha and I want to buy it back. It is just not getting treated right where it is now. I always got a lot of attention when I had it.

Bump! Can anyone else think of anything? Just general ideas if what to do with the visor. I don't wanna take it off, but would like to get rid of the amber.

I wonder if there is a way you could make a mold and make some clear ones?

i bet you could out of fiberglass, and then use a liquid plastic to make them. don't know how you would get it to "set up" though. i think you need heat for that.

How can the visor "make a platinum a platinum"....when they didn't all come with visors?
Just curious...

They all came with visors, So did lariat LE's. Alot of guys took em off but there is some body work required. There are 4 mounds that need to be taken off the roof to make it look right.

Not in Texas they didn't. I almost bought one brand new without a visor.
Google "platinum f250 pics" and you'll see quite a few.

I'd think you would be able to do this, might need to get some sort of a group buy going or something though to get the cost down. But maybe if you can find a smaller plastic injection molding company that would be willing to do it, but you would have to pull yours or get a set to send to them to mold and then recreate, or maybe figure it all out on your own.

Something like these guys (just a link from a google search) Plastic Injection Molding Company

I know I have a friend with a Lariat LE that would probably be interested.
