Smell a la vizor

I know it's weird, but the smell of the visor is a big nostalgia factor. Does anyone know exactly what the material is, or have smelled anything like it? It's kind of like new car smell...

I have one visor in double zip locks for when I'm 65 and want to be taken back.

Another one is on my VB, and smell is growing faint.

I read that it is "Neoprene" but is that really the whole story? I'll have to find another Neoprene item and compare the smell.

Neoprene is what wetsuits are made out of. I remember as a kid, Nintendo really seemed to like neoprene, because it seemed like they started making carrying cases for everything, made out of neoprene.

There were replacements on ebay for $15 and then for $10 there are ones on Amazon. I am half tempted to just get one and see how well it is and smells. I tried putting my used one in a plastic bag with a dryer sheet as recommended but it dodn;t seem to do much for it at all.

Not smell related, but, if you're talking about the RepairBox visors, and you intend to use one on your VB, keep in mind that you may need to poke new holes in the material so that it fits properly on the bracket.

At least with the one I bought a while back, it was the same dimensions as the original, but the holes weren't punched with the same spacing, so it fit tighter around the bracket, leaving way too much excess where your nose is supposed to fit.

I had a similar problem where I had to cut the nose section bigger - it wasn't the right size. And the replacement I got did not have the smell of the original either.
