Rattly lund moonvisor, self tapping screws are stripped, need ideas to fix.
My 96's PO installed a lund moonvisor with self tapping "tek" screws. From the first day I bought the truck the moonvisor has been noisy, rattling and moving around, I tightend the screws down and that would help for about 90 miles, then would start again, (screws would loosen up).
I took out the screws on the top 4 center holes and installed some rivets made for holding on snowmobile fairings. That worked for a few days, but now its back to rattling, and just tore the rivets out.
I have pulled the headliner down partially and cannot get underneath the double celling panel to bolt the thing down.
My thought was to drill through both the roof, the inner roof (if thats what you call it) and the headliner, put in bolts to hold it down, and cover the bolts with a cb radio mount, but want that to be my last option.
This thing is driving me nuts. I love the look of it, and do not want to completely remove it and deal with the 6 holes and paint rubbed away that would be left.
Can anyone give me any suggestions on what to do?
Thanks in advance!
