Not quite. 9" quad view monitor to install flush in the visor. It can display one, two or all four cameras at once. I've ordered two cameras so far, just to play with and get an idea where I want cameras to be mounted.

Color me interested! Looks like a monitor is going in a visor but I'm not sure whats up with the frame.

Oh yeah, it'll fit. I'm not entirely sure how I'll secure it yet, but I'll manage something! This thing is big enough that I could watch TV if I wanted. Now that I think of it, I might add another input and a TV tuner so I can watch TV when the wife is in the store or something.

Yeah, the screen supports 4 camera inputs. It can display one, two or all four cameras at the same time. I'm not yet sure where the cameras will be mounted yet.

Screen

I went with the white screen since it'd be easier to paint than the black.

Cameras

I've picked up two of these so far to try them out. Pretty much all cameras under $100 have mediocre reviews, so I'd start on the cheap end and try them out. Hopefully none of them will be in direct rain anyway, so that might help.

That's really all of the parts. I'll need a little more wire to power each camera, but their video cord is long enough. I'll put a fuse in the new fuse box for the camera system as well, but that's about it.

I pretty much had to cut everything out for it to fit. The visor is spring loaded quite well and easily holds the extra weight of the monitor. The visor is outer vinyl, foam layer, cardboard layer, foam layer and outer vinyl again. At the top and bottom are ~1/8" steel wires that provide the rigidity for the visor.

I fabbed up some sheet metal panels and slid them between the layers of the visor. I notched them to fit the rear screen bracket and secured everything as seen. Routing the wire was a bit of a pain, but I got it in the end.
