Well I tried to install my new LI last night but I couldnt get it installed in the location I wanted (and Cliff said would be the best) without it looking completely stupid. It got really late too so I just figured Id try it another day. I have the CPU and Escort speaker installed and ready to go.
Here is a pic that I sent to Cliff and then he sent back to me. He said the red marks would be the first choice then the green.
Problem is for one the grills outer "ring" is about two inches wide (its an E&G grill). So I have to cut hole in it to slide the brackets in. then theres all kinds of other crap behind it like rings that the grill clips go into, a bar with brackets and bolts that hold the grill flush.
I cut the holes for the first bracket, and got the head in. But when I put the bumper cover back on to make sure I could align and level it, I realized that the front of my car comes to a point at the front which means that one end of the sensor has to stick out WAY too much, almost four inches.
I will have someone cut holes in my bumper cover before I have some bracket (which I would have to make one) sticking out 4 inches.
So I was thinking that maybe I could get away with mounting them in the green location. What do you guys think? I could even mount them with the diodes facing inwards right below the headlight in the top of the turn signal hole. It would leave a bigger spot in the middle but does that matter as much since my car is black?
I am also looking for a LIDAR gun. Are LTI marksman or Laser Atlanta guns easy or hard to jam? I was thinking that If I did go with the green locations I could test them with one of those guns.
