    Custom radar detector install

    I got around to moving my radar detector above the mirror and hard-wiring it to the ACC line in the auto-dimming mirror cable. While I had everything apart, I decided to make one of the dome light switches turn on the detector, and i even used an LED from a spare power cable as an indication light for the detector when I have it in "dark" mode.

    Way to go, I thought about hard wiring it on the left side but I have to admit I like it where you put it. I would most likely use a blue LED, hehe for the power. Nice one though.
