i was contemplating a radar "jammer" and ran into some very interesting problems!....i drive a 1988 corvette and as you may know, is very low to the ground.....according to what i understand, the BLINDER units must be mounted outside and not behind glass for them to
work...well, that is a "let-down" for sure!
***i cannot mount the laser modules in the area that is for the turn signals or driving/running/signal lights and to note, there are no openings and no grill at the front...newer corvettes intake air from the bottom)....so, where do i mount the laser modules w/o drilling into any fiberglass or urethane body parts???
***since the front bumper cover wraps around the the front and under the car, the units cannot be mounted there (urethane) as above. further, there is a small steel "intake" of sorts that habitually scrapes the ground and speed bumps in parking lots so, the modules cannot be mounted there.........that leaves nowhere and no front coverage, unless someone can send me an actual picture of a c-4 1988 vette and it's mounting to
prove me wrong, taking into consideration the above.
also, if a blinder was mounted so very far under the car, let me use this scenario as an example;
.....an leo is 500' - 700 feet away and holding a laser speed measuring gun at approx eye level which is say 5' 10''' above common grade (average height to eyes of officer) .....i have my vette in plain sight of the "gun".......the angle of the laser would be in a slightly downward plane to shoot the license plate area or the headlight area (no license plates are required here in florida and thusly, i do not have one or the bracket for such mounting)........
.....now, with the unit(s) mounted so far under the car as mentioned above, and the laser "beam"coming in relatively from the top (unless the gun was mounted 5'' off of the road surface!) most of (if not all) the surface area of the blinder "lense" would be hidden and greatly reduce any performance, ugh!.....
**lastly, the car is low and we have established that. in florida, we have some torrential rains and some pretty deep roadway accumulations of
water. when the car "hits" that puddle, the force of the displaced water will most surely rip off and or damage the jammer as well as pull out any
screws through the body and, as we all know, the force of water is very great (i went through 4 huricanes recently here in florida and that
doesn't include the force of the
........please advise and i will be
looking for some real-time pictures of actual installations....thanks!
