Radar Detector Mounting Bracket PICS

UPDATE - Purchase link here http://www.olmarsupply.com/radar.html

Got my STi Driver and the mount is the same so this will work with those as well.


Hey guys, I'm in the process of designing and making a mount very similar to this one - http://www.vettemods.com/radarbracket-c6.htm for the Camaro. It will use the same mounting point (the passenger side visor clip) and drop down to the same approximate location. Final pics should be up by next week.

This is an "interest" thread so please add your name if you would like one.This is no obligation just wanted to see how many people would be interested.

I can currently make these for escorts, as I have em on hand to measure. If anyone has an extra original mounting bracket for any other brand/model and would like one of these at half off, please PM me.

First ten will get it at $25 Shipped and after that it will be $30 shipped. Will be available in professionally powdercoated black or unfinished. They will be made out of Stainless Steel or aluminum. I am going to test both and see if the aluminum wont flex too much.

Please add your info to the list if you are interested. Use this format please
Screenname, Model of detector, finished/unfinished.

Working on them today guys.

I have decided to use a plastic rubber shield around the metal to prevent any possible damage to the car. Color options coming soon.

Ran into a little problem.

I have the bracket going as close to the windshield and as high as possible so that the radar detector does not obstruct the view. With the Passport 8500, the passenger visor cannot swing all the way around. I should have pictures of the first prototype installed in a couple hours.

The visor will go past 90, but not all the way to the windshield. With shorter radar detectors this should not be a problem. My STi Driver will be here tomorrow so I will update with that.

I could drop the radar detector down a bit but then I am worried about visibility. Pics coming soon.

Ok guys, Heres the prototype pics.

This is not perfect and not finished yet. They will have a black rubber coating on them to prevent and scratches/tears in the headliner.

Drivers view - honestly doesnt obscure at all. Much less than a center mounted.

Closer -

The visor clip "snaps" in to hold the bracket still. It does not wobble or move at all while driving. No annoying rattle.

The only problem - I do not want to drop down the detector anymore because of visibility. I can live with the passenger visor only opening this much - You guys?

I also did the "Direct Wire SmartCord" and hard wired it to my fuse box on the drivers side so I have a remote light and mute button that sits right behind the driver's side door window defrost vent so almost no wires are exposed. This way I see the light go off on the right side as well as the left so I shouldn't miss it no matter which way I am looking.
