I tapped into my overhead console with a quick connect. I also fabricated a long skinny piece of sheetmetal, put a bend in it to allow the the radar detector mount, then moved the visor, removed the viser clip, drilled a hole in the fabricated sheetmetal. I then ran the screw for the viser clip through the sheet metal and and the visor clip acted like a stop. I will take a pic later on today when I get off work. This installation allows for a clean install, and with the placement of the radar detector inside the tint strip, nobody sees it. including the cops;) Rader detectors are line of sight devices, so the higher it is, the longer your effective range is, the less chance of you getting nailed for speeding:) the flipside is that if the cops use LIDAR, you are toast. They can only use LIDAR while they are standing still. If they are moving, it is RADAR.
Any problem can be solved with the proper amount of Explosives
