Warning this glareshield is nothing like the original in my 172M 66061. It is a piece of semi finished fibreglass that would need alot of cutting to size and modifying to get it to fit. Then it would need upholstering to get it looking semi decent. It was a waste of money and freight costs to get it to New Zealand just to throw out.
GLARESHIELD CESSNA 172L STC LTD 12V
Just to add to my previous review after consulting with Spruce they were gracious enough to issue me a full refund amount for this glare shield. Thank you.
Like the 1-piece design but a little short on the ends so it doesn’t tuck tight to the windshield or behind the sidewall panels like the OEM panel. It sits about an inch above it the sidewall. Good fit around the rest of the windshield otherwise so didn’t have to trim for a good fit, just cut holes for the defroster & compass bracket.
Couldnt be more disappointed. This is by far the worst fitting product Ive ever bought. I would suggest Aircraft Spruce stop distributing these. I recently bought one for an 80 172N. To say trimming was required is an understatement. There are essentially zero install instructions. We simply refused to install it. It wont fit properly at all and has zero flexibility, the front lip is showing fiberglass underneath it and is a really poor look, and it sticks out way too far, about 3-4 inches. Plus it will not fit the existing aluminum structure. We decided to apply vinyl for the glareshield and cover and stitch the existing eyebrow instead of installing this product.

These lights are standard white lights. They are separate from the glareshield and are removable. Yes, this product is STC'd.
No, the lights are incandescent.
