Windshield eyebrow for School Bus or Semi

I would like to find an eye-brow that goes above the windshield for my bus. After a few Google searches I am beginning to wonder if they are called eyebrows any longer, nothing useful is coming up in my searches. Is there another name I should be using to search with?

We always called what you are describing a visor. The little bitty ones above the headlights on old trucks and motorcycles are eyebrows, try that. Good luck.

Google is coming up interior sun visors. I am looking for an exterior sheet metal or fiberglass (?) visor or eyebrow that goes all the way across the front of the bus just above the windshield.


Edit: The term "exterior windshield Visor" is working, thanks Buster!

Well heck, we called the exterior ones visors too. Maybe an awning or something like that?

Re: Windshield eyebrow for School Bus or Semi


Something like this but I will have to find a used one and modify it.

Does anyone know if any exterior visors were ever made for a school bus?



The installation I will be doing is here. It looks like I may be moving the two front marker lights if I am able to find a visor I can modify.

Any ideas?

Yeah Tim, I was just thinking I may have to build it myself. I am thinking 5/32" plate. And something smaller then the one shown above. I would like to locate it just above the lower run of screws.
