put my visor on today

Bought this lund visor a while ago. Bought all new lenses gaskets and screws on ebay. Bought all new bulbs at napa. Tested the lights with shop lights off with a drill batterie and looks awsome. Cant believe how bright they actually were. Painted it white with 1 and 1/2 cans and put half can clear on. Lots of runs and scrapes but cant tell when its mounted. Cant wait to hook it up and see what they look like lit up. Looks cool already though. Heres some pics.

do all our trucks have the proper connectors for these visors? (1995 F150) ive been thinking of one but i don't want to really splice things together unless I do it professionally (proper wires, crimps, ect) but if theres already a connector of some sort in existence for these trucks that would be nice, and where is/would it be if it does exist?

hooking up a visor is not a hard job. if the truck isnt already factory wired for the cab lights then just run a wire from the parking light wire under the dash up the inside of windsheild pillarand drill a hole just big enough for the wire to exit the roof under visor and silicone it goodso it wont leak and hook to visor lights.

Looks good! Did you notice any increased wind noise, or other downfalls of having a visor?

Thanks, how can one tell if the truck is prewired for cab lights or not?
