We'll I've had a spare visor and a flexable keyboard sitting in my room for quite some time so i figured i'd stop procrastinating. Issues were there 1st the keyboard was to big (smallest one that would be practicle). When the visor closed the hinge would snap the keyboard and crush the circuit board.

Solution. I used 1 sheets of cardboard and took apart the visor. I then traced the cardboard so the keyboard was far enough down that it wouldnt hit the hinge. After that i put the foam on the back and wrapped it in c/f vinyl. i honestly couldnt figure out how to make that streach and fit correctly so there are 2 seams visible on the back but it doesnt bother me. the pics accent it badly but oh well :)

It was tested and only issue i found was that u have to hit the space bar in the center or it doesnt register. i was IM'ing to trdguy81 in the car and all my words ran together ;) I dont think i am going to wrap the passenger to make them match just becasue it looks cleaner as is.









It blends into the headliner when looking up much more then the passenger. so its more of a hidden look. the pics really accented it badly with the flash but it was to dark w/o so oh well

For some reason I just find this funny dan. They have EL-Glow Keyboards now that roll up for like $40. Just pop that under your seat.

that is cool but it would be to long for a visor :( that and i wanted black so it would blend in abit more. I have a spare clear looking one that i was cutting up to try to fit to the origonal visor.

matt it would be to hard to make it out of real c/f. visors would need to be fiberglass hard then wrapped.

well if you have a touch screen... I'd rather use the on screen keyboard.
I did use that once when on AIM and though it works and i got the hang of it quick, a keyboard is much easier. And lets face it, what on my car is practicle :) its all to be different and look spiffy :chuckles:
