"If you are semi-skilled, you could mount the V1 on the left side of the right side visor, then run the wire down the left A pillar. (I would suggest running the wire behind the head airbag.) Then you could mount the remote unit on the front edge of the lower ledge of the instrument cluster in front of the service indicator lights. This can be mounted with a bit of velcro. The wire could then come up behind the back edge of that ledge but just in front of the clear plastic in front of the instrument cluster. Every 8000 miles or so you would then have to look around the back of the remote and see how many green lights were lit up."
This seems like the best way to go. Thank you much for the idea.
Did you ever see or hear about the V-1 modification done by Autotek in Manhattan? The guy puts a display in the rear view mirror, with sand blasted (or etched) arrows in the lower right corner. I believe that the main unit is on the rear deck hidden under stock looking fabric. However, I'm doubtful that the laser detection would be very effective from back there. I'd have it done if it weren't for one crucial detail: it costs $3,000!
