Looking good!

I always liked to have my V1 installed with a direct power supply and out of sight. In my previous cars I've always tapped in to the maplight circuit near the rearview mirror using their direct-wire power adapter and a ~8" power cord. The detector doesn't draw nearly enough amps to overload the circuit and I never had to pull out the A-pillars or anything, and it keeps it (mostly) out of sight of both The Man and anyone scoping for something to steal :)
