    I made the pod from a 1 1/2" to 1 1/2" rubber pipe coupling and sheet aluminum for the band for looks. I used foam tape sandwiched between sheets of aluminum on both sides and ran 2 screws through the stock holes. It looks somewhat OEM in my opinion...

    Is this what you used?



    I'm curious to see a side view of the pics and also how you mounted it.

    On a note about the camera... do you have a "macro" setting? That will let you take in-focus pictures within 2 feet of the subject. A faster shutter setting will help with the night pics.

    Thanks.
