Mounted mine on the dot matrix at top center of of the windshield and also has a light on it to let you know it's on.
I wired the 12v source to the fuse panel for the radio fuse, grounded it on one of the roof screws that hold the metal frame up for the dome light.
I'd definitely like pictures too. I was thinking about going to the salvage yard and taking a whole antenna system out of a car and sticking it somewhere inside the car but this sounds even better.
