  • sun visor clip

    Does anyone recognize the sun visor clip shown in the photos below? Trying to determine if this clip was only found on Innocenti Minis like my '72 Mini 1000, or if certain years of British Minis used these clips as well. I'm missing one, and hoping it's not an Inno-specific part. That always makes the search a bit more challenging (albeit sometimes more fun, too).

      Thanks Peter. Can you post a photo of the clips that Jamie made?

        Something very similar was used on the English built Minis, but that fact isn't going to help you much. They were used for only about one year...around 1965. For instance, all the Heinz Hornets had them.
        It's possible something close enough in similarity is still available. Start by checking in with the Early Mini Forum on the Specialist Mini Forums. You could also contact the Mini Cooper Register's Innocenti Registrar. I can get you the link if you don't have it.

        The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.

          Thanks Chuck. I'm not familiar with the Innocenti Registrar. Please post the link.

            You are and just don't know it! His name is Foster Charlton and he's a regular on the Inno section of the Specialist Mini Forum. gingerfoss at hotmail dot com

              I second the suggestion that Jamie be contacted. He can make the clip you want and make it look just the way you want it.
