    Default Concealed Display Custom Mount

    In my younger days I was pretty big into car audio and fabrication. As a throwback to those days I learned how to fabricate things using ABS plastic and fiberglass. Well....my latest project which I completed on Sunday afternoon was to build a small enclosure and flush mount my Valentine 1 radar detectors remote display. It sits right above the steering wheel and looks absolutely stock. It took several hours of forming, sanding, painting, etc. but I think the results speak for themselves.

    As soon as I receive my new COLORED V1 display from Lifespeed, this should *REALLY* look awesome.

    The contrast on my camera makes the enclosure look a bit different in color, but it actually is almost an exact match to the steering column.

    What do you think?

    I think I want that car. I like this install the best on the S4 though. http://forums.audiworld.com/s4/msgs/337148.phtml

    Default Nice!

    Yeah, I've seen that S4 install some time ago. I definitely like that as well, but, the mute button is gone - unless he was able to mount it someplace else.

    To my thinking though, even if the mute button was mounted elsewhere, it might be fairly difficult to access.

    Default Pics of the car

    A few pics for those interested. My cam makes the car look blueish, it's actually Titanio Grigio (silver).

    Also, could we see how you have the actual RD mounted? Is it with the regular suction cups or do you have it stealth mounted as well?

    What a first class install. :!: Very well done! I'd love to learn how to use ABS plastic to create such a mount.
