Hey.
I have made a guide on how you attach a LG visor to a TT helmet(Giro A2).

What do you think?

is the visor glued on to hold it in place or does it need to come out so the helmet can be worn/removed?

I can easly remove the helmet when the glass is on. The visor is not glued into place but it is 'stuck' in the helmet. It sits pretty tight.

I found that there really wasn't any necessity to cut the sides of the visor. You just need to peel the ear flaps a bit further back.

****Hey! That looks really nice! It looks factory done! Does the visor stay in place even over bigger bumps and such?

Yeah. It's a really tight fit to get it in there. It may also be different with different helmet sizes. Mine is a medium.

There is a very easy way - just get a Louis Garneau Superlegerra or Rocket helmet! The Superlegerra is one of the lightest TT helmets on the market, by far the most aerodynamic under non 0 yaw angle conditions.

Since the original visor is way to expensive I'm going to try to make one for my helmet
