I just picked up an original Fulton Visor for my '46 (not sure if it will go on the pick-up or suburban). Not being familiar with them, it looks to me that the sides are mounted to the drip rail with screws. Has anybody found a way to mount these without drilling holes into the cab driprail (eg: a pinch type clamp)?

I really struggle with drilling holes for fear that I will screw up the paint job. Absent a good way to mount it without drilling may ultimately determine that it will be installed on the suburban (unrestored) but I was ultimately thinking that I would find one for both of them.

Thoughts?

It doesn't mount to the drip rail, it mounts to the door jamb underneath the drip rail.

My passenger side bracket.

Hmmmm. now that seems to make more sence. Creates a little challenge with the angle off of the roof line. It is becoming very clear why the traffic view finder is required. I think I'll mount this one to the suburban as a trial first. I'll post pictures on my web page when I do it (have not seen any other '46s with one (other than the models).


Thanks for the pic and the link!

My visor is not a Fulton but it is a clamp type mount. Only one I've ever seen with a clamp.

Photos are in my Flickr set http://flic.kr/s/aHsju1aDTy

Interesting. What brand is it if you know? Does it have a center support?

No clue. I've only seen it on one or two other AD trucks online. It does have a center support and it breaks down into three main pieces plus the chromed center edge trim and the brackets

This is when I first got it.

Here it is installed on the truck.

Here's a giant photo in which you can see the bracket/clamp.

I must be blind I still don't see a center bracket. Nice looking visor though.
