    I tried the search function here and didnt see anything. I dont trust that all manufacturers use thw same method so i wanted Tundra specific info.

    Anyone have a killer method to remove the shit ton of labels that seem to be pressed into my visors?

    Or a sweet cover up?

    Seems like one of those iron on patches would serve to cover them.

    Well, I may have found a solution just after posting.

    They have a bunch of different colors. I think I'll score a set and report back for the next Tundra driver that wants a cover-up.

    Metric shit ton of parts
    Old ones are easy to remove. Just get a towel wet, place over the stickers, and put a hot iron on top. The steam will get under the sticker and it will peal like an orange.

    Ya, I loved those. So easy to discard. These new guys seem to be a piece of vinyl melted into the visors.

    I've removed mine on my last three Tundras with a hair dryer. On my new Pro I even removed the vinyl sleeve.

    Just heated and pulled? Looks good? I'd much rather have them gone than just covered up.

    Heated up corner to get started. Don't over heat. You can see remaining glue residue in same shapes as stickers. Much less noticeable than stickers. Pics later if you need them.
