    Almost everyone should have these supplies and tools to put together the Sun-shield like I made from th bottom half of a wide eye-glass black case, small piece of coat-hanger wire for the front re-inforcement and approximately 50 cents worth of velcro. Black shoe polish, and 4 cotton balls for soaking up excell polish, approximately 4 drops of super glue
    Tools, small side cutter, scissors, small straight edge and box cutter.
    Total cost less than $1.00 and 1 hour of my time.

    Nice mod. How is it when you have it mounted?

    It is a nice mod. That visor looks like it will shield the sun very well.

    My homemade Sunlight shield, to my supprise works better than I expected. It looks as if I am indoors when I have it on the TT and mounted to the windshield of my 04 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad cab truck.
    The shield is very easy to put on, does not interfere with the power button or using the touch screen.

    equlizer,
    Thanks for the heads-up on the light sensor. I completely forgot about the sensor and just plain lucked up and didn't cover it up.
