    You might have to do a little bending on the tabs of the end brackets to get them to fit properly & flush with the door jamb.....
    That's why I always recommend that you test fit the visor to the car before painting anything.

    The seller sent this photo to show how the bracket should fit.How is this possible?
    The tabs are too short to reach into the door-jamb,leaving the bracket to lean out
    at a 45 degree angle!Who's wrong here,the seller,the bracket or me?

    Something is wrong with the bracket you have pictured....It has been modified & it does not look like it will fit your car at all..... It looks like someone added extra material to one of the tabs & put an extra bend in it.

    There is No way you can mount that bracket to your car
    { & expect to be able to open & close the door }.

    No way no how!Sonow I'm looking to buy a pair of side mounting brackets for a Fulton 1000 Series.Brackets should have "M1" stamped on them,very difficult to see
    so look carefully.Added a picture of an "M2" where I've added a piece of cardboard to show what it should look like.

    Hello -

    I just joined after finding this thread. I too am working on a '54 3100 , and just acquired what I think is a Fulton visor from a '52. I know that mounting is an issue because the '54 has a one piece windshield , but this seems like a good place to seek info.

    I believe I read that that Keep On Truckin prefers to sell complete packages , not components.
    Can anyone here steer me in the right direction regarding mounting this salvageable old visor on my '54 Chev pickup?

    Thanks in advance , Waveski
