    www.scubiemods.com ( I hope I spelled it right) has a write up on how to do it.

    basically you use some goo-off and a tooth brush.

    Yeah, I was going to try the hair dryer thing myself, just haven't gotten around to it. Still might try it over this.
    Seems like a pita.

    hey guys... i took mine off. it took some time because it really helps to let the stuff soak. i didnt have any kind of pad to rub with, but i used a tooth brush and my fingernail.... you have to go over it a few times... first to get the paint off, then to get the base underneath the paint off. just put some on and spread it around and let it soak. 5 or 10 mins later come back and go at it to get off what you can. then put some more on and let it soak some more.
    the visor will stretch out a bit, but just wash it off really well with soap and water, and then dry it under a book or something like that.... it will shrink back up. the only other thing i noticed is that they smell faintly from the goof off for about about a week afterward, but this smell faded after that.
    there is faint residue left on the outer edge of my visors, but its hardly noticeable...
    just make sure to do this outside or something... i got really lightheaded from that goof off stuff. any questions? shoot me a PM...

    p.s. i'm definitely happy with the results... its not absolutely perfect, but its not far off either, and it beats a bright yellow square in the corner of your eye when you are driving...

    Hey, I'm trying to find the thread where the guy posted a picture of a sticker he got from a vendor that looks like the warning stickers, but says something like "Warning: turbo may cause women to lose clothing..." or something like that. It was pretty funny. Anyone know who that was, or what the thread was?

    Thanks Byan! Yeah, I don't think it's worth $7.99, but at least I've got a picture of it now and I can work from there
