    Default modified concealed display on ebay

    i have just created two concealed displays for my father and my v1. they have a green led for x, yellow for k, orange for ka and red for laser. the signal strength has also been modified there are two green, two yellow, two orange and two red leds. i was wondering if people had any interest in this kind of modification. i am considering selling them on ebay for a very slight markup over retail. thanks for any ideas or input.

    Throw them on Ebay right now before other people get the idea to do the same thing. Ride the gravy train as long as you can.

    Default Do It.

    I use the concealed display because I live in Virginia. Just last night I was thinking that I'd love to be able to distinguish which band my V1 was reading but since it was dark it was not so easy to figure if it was Ka or K... The color idea is a great idea :!:

    Default is it legal?

    Is it legal to alter an existing product then sell it without Mike Valentine approving it under trademark or copyright laws? Just curious!

    I would love the colored LEDS on the main V-1!

    Absoluetly. Is it legal to put aftermarket parts on your car and sell it on ebay? Yes. There should be no problems with legality issues

    There shouldn't be a problem since Mike made money on the original sale of the display. Where it crosses the line is if someone reverse engineers the display and starts making/selling their own without buying them from VR or getting licensed from VR to manufacture the displays.
