No offense to you for wanting one or anything, but I've always thought they look silly. If the sun's high enough for them to be useful, the interior sunvisors work every bit as well (particularly on RAV4s, I've found, as they fit very close to the rearview mirror), and if the exterior visor's down far enough to be effective in any other circumstances, it obstructs field of vision across the top of the windshield.

I’ve recently purchased a 1998 RAV4 and have been restoring it with my dad. We’ve been able to restore her with all original pieces and parts. The roof racks are the last piece of the puzzle and i haven’t been able to find them anywhere. Where should I look? Where have you guys found them?
