Third time lurker, first time poster.
The head deck in my car sits pretty high up towards my dash, and being an old car, the windows aren't tinted at all. The LEDs on the unit are pretty bright, but it still gets too glarey throughout the day to even read it at all. I'm looking for a cheap and easy way to remove all/most of the glare. I had an idea of having a kind of plastic visor attached to the surroundings, which would place the unit in a 'hidey-hole' so to speak. Let's see what you can come up with! Thanks.
Btw, if it was to look like shit, I'd like it to be easily removable.
Removing Lettingering from Chiclet Keyboard

I have an ASUS EeePC with a chiclet style keyboard. The lettering looks like some sort of stickers pasted onto each key. Since I use a different key layout, and touchtype anyway I don't really need nor want the letterings.
I tried removing the lettering sticker-y thingies with Isopropyl alcohol/Propanol and even tried acetone based nail polish remover, but neither did anything..
When I asked /g/ they suggested butter, fire, a dremel with cotton buffing wheel, methanol, vinegar...
Butter and Fire seem pretty stupid each for their own reasons, I currently can't get my hands on a Dremel.
Now Methanol or Vinegar could maybe work, but I have my doubts since not even acetone did shit (except a bit damage to the key itself, which I had expected).
So I thought before I continue I'd ask you folks.
Are there any other tips you might have for me?
And if I may ask a second question, Does anyone know if chiclet Keys can safely be removed or is there a high chance of breaking shit?
Thanks in advance...
pic related, thats what the keyboard looks like

Being a beginner in electronics, I once had a DIY electronics kit when i was little that had several different capacitors, resistors, transistors, LED's on it, and you had a little book showing where to put wires to create a circuit eg. flashing led using a capacitor discharge.
My problem is that it had a way to make the LED turn off when you turned the power on, and I dont remember how to do it. before anyone asks, no it didnt have a relay. can anyone here describe what im looking for?
Thanks in advance
Picture half-related, this is more complex than the one i used to have

Hi there, /diy/. First time poster, but I do browse this board a lot, since I admire the worksmanship.
Anyway, to the point. I'm from /fit/, and I'm looking to build a free-standing pull-up bar frame that can be dissembled for easy storage. Looking to make it like pic related, but haven't written up any schematics or thought about weight bearing - looking to be able to withstand 70-90kg (150-200lb) people doing various dynamic movements on it. I've had a look over Google and YouTube, but there isn't really anyone who has posted a foolproof plan to make a stable and torsion-free frame. Was also wanting to make the surface of the bar where people would be gripping, a little bit rough in order to increase grip. Perhaps some thick, contoured rubber around the bar would suffice?
Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction? Any help is very greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
