I'm about to mount the sensor to my car using the supplied bracket but I'm worried about how well it will hold up over time. The bracket is a piece of steel painted black. You can bend it or cut off what you don't need.
In the videos I've seen, the sensor is simply pushed into the area where it's meant to be held. There are two extensions bent so they will clamp and hold the sensor but it seems to me if this is what you do, you will scrape the paint and eventually the bracket will start to rust. I'm thinking of spreading the clamping area open enough so the sensor will slide in easily then release the two sides and let them spring back, holding the sensor in place.
In addition, I was thinking maybe it would be a good idea to dip the whole thing in liquid plastic (except the front plate naturally) to further weather proof the install. Anyone else have some ideas? The alternative would be to make a mounting bracket out of delrin or something else non-corrosive.
