You could have someone weld them up ,then re-spray the cab.That would be the best(IMO) as for overall looks goes.Or you could take the visor off,then put the screws back in the roof with some sealant on them and put caps on them.

The dude is wanting to remove it not install it? I would have them welded up if I were you. They used a Lund visor, at least mine is. I would just find out hwere it is leaking and fix it, the visor really helps eliminate the glare from the late afternoon sun!!

Should've been more clear. I got the factory harness from ford that plugs into the existing harness to run the regular cab lights. If you just take the visor off you have holes that have to be filled so I put the regular cab lights in instead of just covering the holes.

Do you have a sun roof? The sunroof drains can get plugged and then your roof liner gets wet.

Hope it doesn't have a bracket spot welded on. If it does... get ready to spend some coin.
