I put two heads in the grill and two in the lower valence. The grill was by far the most time consuming.
First I cut out sections of the grill (aftermarket).
Then I mounted some aluminum plates that the Blinder mounts will sit on.
I painted the plates and repainted the grill Rustoleum flat black.
I mounted the Blinders and got them square. I put the grill back in so I could adjust for level. Then I pulled it back out to put some black paint on the mount screws. I used painters tape to cover the lens.
Front view of the installation. The lower heads are to the left and right of the license plate. They are mounted to the plastic. The upper heads hide fairly well straight on. I haven’t put the covers on the holes for leveling yet so you can see the screws shining.
Side shot showing how much the heads stick out. They stick out enough to have a great off axis view. A yard stick lays flat across both grill heads. I rechecked the lower heads and they need a hair of adjustment to be square.
The stock Blinder switch didn't fit in my pop-out plastic piece so I used a smaller switch and mounted the LED next to it.
Although the Blinder buzzer is loud, I connected the Blinder mute to my radio mute to make sure I hear a lidar warning (every second counts). I would love to test it sometime if anyone is in the area (San Diego to Los Angeles)
