Sun Visor Mirror?

I am thinking about buying Kappasphere's sun visor mirror. Has anyone bought and installed one? Most OEM sun visor mirrors come with a closing cover. I am wondering whether an uncovered mirror on a sun visor will be a distraction while driving when the top is down. Has anyone had experience one way or the other? Thanks,

we mounted it on the passenger visor and havent had any problems with it at all...no distractions what so ever....nice quality....good fit....just let the adhesive cure per the instructions.......we even mounted JPMs visor covers...and then added the mirror back on without problems.....

Very important advice. I didn't wait the required amount of time before putting the visor back up and the adhesive gave out causing the mirror to fall off. Definitely leave the visor straight out until the adhesive cures.

Who is JPM? Did you find a cover for the mirror itself so that the glass is not showing?

The bumpasaurus brings this back up. Kappasphere had a special on this via e-mail a while back but when I went to buy it on-line they didn't list it. I'll drop them a note, but wanted to ask if anyone else installed and are they happy with it?

Do we need to bring this up, this thread is over 5 years old!

5 years is a long, long time to carry something in inventory that didn't sell very well.

Got mine to stick just fine. The instructions call for letting the sticky stuff set for a while. Been 5 years and it's still there. Old thread has photos, I think.

lol! Only brought it up because there was a "need". (And I searched to find some background before I brought it up - hence the "thread revival")

Being the buyer of a used car I'm relying heavily upon "those who have gone before".

I've seen the Kappasphere's sun visor mirror within a couple of meets. It's not for me, but I can see how others would use it. Go for it.
