    It's like a mini sunvisor.

    I'm guessing everyone is applying some liquid glue after their soldering? I have been building different thinks for my computer like some cabinnet controlers for my MAME system (little box with regular arcade controls buttons and sticks, work super nice.).

    Glue, or you can use a sticky tiedown holder like mine.

    I saw this one on another board. I was thinking of doing the same with my sunglass holder on my 99 accord. However, I have heard people having issues with the length of extension wires and also on my pioneer p7000r, the eject button is on the back of the faceplate.

    Look awesome though.

    I thought about that but I didnt want to flip it down to see it while driving. And I wanted to make sure my remote had a clear line of sight to it because it gets finicky if it doesnt have one.

    I also thought about above my rear view mirror, but it was about 1/8" to big to fit.

    That is not a good idea.

    Legal issues, plus you won't see me speeding by you and you might cut me off, unless you got a rearview camera and screen.
