Installing Window visors bcnr33

So some time ago i managed to track down a new set of OEM Nissan window visors/rain guards for a R33. I wanted to see if anybody has some tips on installing them.

The problem is that these little clips you get with them are made to slide between the window trim and roof... I think. Problem that i see is that there is about 4mm space between my window trim and roof, so the clips will wont stay put if i would use them.

Has anybody had this problem and a way around it, or maybe i am wrong and these clips are secured in a different way.

Further more would the double sided sticky tape that comes on the visors be enough to hold them securely. And yes i know most people can't stand these visors but i really love those things for some reason!

the optional deflectors are available.

we have genuine nissan r32, 33, and R34 gt-r ones

(Toni yours will beshipped shortly)


the clips fit as you say between the trim and roof.

be careful as you really only get one chance at installing these.

Then i don't see these ever fitting on my BCNR33 because the space between the trim and roof is like 4mm. My bad luck, my previous GTST had even more space! Maybe i will try with just the sticky tape and front clips because there is no space between the trim and A pillars.

Yes i got those new from a Nissan dealer. Ill take a look at trying to install them when my BCNR33 come's back from the shop. Maybe i'm just not getting how those clips actually secure to the window molding.
