    Default X50 Concealed Options (Pics)

    I have a Yukon that does not have a rear-airconditioning control panel above the rear-view mirror. However, there is still space to maybe mount a detector there. I just want your take. Sorry about the quality of the pics.

    This is a good idea, the best way to know if it will work is to try it :wink: just make sure there is no metal in front of the RD.

    Actually, how much plastic/glass/etc. (besides metal) would affect radar detection? Like 1 inch of plastic? Less/more?

    I have a 98 Silverado and was looking at that as well. I think it would be to much work and I dont want to permanently damage the interior.

    Lame! Did you guys remember what Pipedope did on his X50! Had the display behind the radio display! That was sick.

    I tried to do the same thing in my Dad's Yukon back in the mid 90's...when I took the panel off I found a screw right behind that held the overhead console to the roof....there was no way around it.

    I also do not think the angle of the display and detector will be all that good anyways gven the angle of the overhead console. It will also be tough to see the display up there.

    Just my two cents
