    Great job

    Great Idea. How much of a pain was it to wire up all the sensors??

    Ski,

    No sensors involved. Just run one wire (included) from the main V1 unit near the mirror, down the headliner trim adjacent to the windshield, down the pillar, under the dash and to the remote display unit. The main V1 unit was wired for power using taps from the power going to the mirror. That process is described by others (I found out how by searching on the www.nasioc.com forum). The clock keeps its own original power plug. The whole process probably took me several hours, most of which was sawing and filing the plastic console to neatly fit both units. You have to proceed slowly and carefully to avoid cutting away too much plastic, which would leave a gap.

    Regards,
    Peter

    I think the extra hours made for a great job. I decided to go with this setup, took very little time and was much cheaper for me. Valintine 1's are expensive. Yours looks much better.

    Ski,

    But where it counts, I bet your installation will work just as well!
