Default Old School Sun Visor

One of the best aspects of a custom Sand Scorcher build is the 60+ years of inspiration to be had from all the cool 1:1 Beetles out there.

So next up, a retro sun visor for the windscreen, here's my plans:

And on the 3D model:

Here's the first test print:

The brackets are attached on the inside in a simple "tree" arrangement, which also helped the part stay upright in the print process:

Which needed trimming off before use:
