Before starting this project make sure you find a good location for your camera. Take into consideration the camera mounting screw, and a position that is out of your line of sight.

Sand all areas inside mounting area with sand paper. Then clean with Rubbing Alcohol.
Remove red film from GoPro mount and apply mount to desired location.
Mix plastic epoxy in accordance to its instructions using a plastic knife. Tip: mix epoxy on aluminum foil, it works great and you can just throw it away.
Use your plastic knife to work epoxy into gap between visor and mount. Tip: toothpicks work well at getting out air bubbles, and pushing epoxy into the gap.
Once you have filled the gap completely, use tooth picks to scrape extra epoxy off visor.
