If anyone has some pictures / advice i'd appreciate it... Honda said $65 to install the 2 of them!!!!!! Thanks for any help guys.

The directions for the visors are the most confusing set of directions ever.

To be honest, just use common sense when installing, the visors clip in and use double sided tape. Thats all there is too them, the directions get too technical with measurement.

So... is the "rail" that they barely rest on? I have to just stick it on there? it doesnt seem right with the clearance between the clip and the tape...?

Yes... Common sense is key to these things. The minute you start getting confused, just start doing it on your own. If I can do it, anyone can!!!

It is very simple and you really don't even need to take the channel out. I just test fitted some on my car and it was actually easier to do it without removing the channel.

I started with the two front hooks by using a thin piece of metal to insert between the weatherstripping and metal door frame, slid the hooks in and let them grab the "rail". The visor should hang loosely on the window frame now. Then I went to the rear two tabs, again used a thin piece of metal to pry the channel away a bit, and inserted the tabs from below pushing inwards and upwards, front tab partially in first then back tab. This was a little harder to accomplish than the front hooks, but after two or three tries I was able to get both tabs inserted. From there you would be able to remove the 3M tape backing and stick them down. I did not do this as I was just test fitting them to see if I liked them.
