Lookin good there, Jachin. I'd like to know how the wires will be routed too. Can you elaborate?

The visor looks a little thick. Have you considered mounting the screens without the rear housing?

Yeah, that was one option. I have to admit that in the end, certain elements of this might seem tacky. The screens were inexpensive, so i can live with them being a little thick, and im not putting the second visor back in, so it should seem about normal with them up. When i flip them down, it might be another matter, idk ill have to see. They are thick because i had to make some foam plates that attatced to the visor so the screens woudnt just stick out and also so i could mount them in the visors. I might go back later on anc cut out the back like you said, all depends on how satisfied i am with the final project. As for the wires, they are thicker than what i would like them to be, but for the most part, after i redo my headliner, they wont be seen. there is no way to run them through the visor mount

the plastic housing was maybe 3/8 along with the chipset id say about 1/2 inch. Im considering shaving down the back of the visor on the other other side considering it isnt fabriced yet, and comparing the 2. Like just about everything else i do, im not gunna get the best result the first time, or the second or third for that matter.
