[DML] Re: DeLorean Radar Detectors.



( sigh....., moderator)

Mike, removing the headliners depends on how clean you want your
installation to be.  A brand new V1 should come with the unit itself,
and two methods of power. One plugs into the accessory outlet, the
second one taps directly into vehicle power. They both have RJ11 jacks
for wiring it up with simple phone line.

If you have the adaptor that taps directly into vehicle power, place
it somewhere in the electrical compartment and tap into a circuit
switched with ACC or IGN.  Make your you tap it downcurrent of the
fuse!  I used the instrument cluster circuit.  You can then run your
phone line anywhere you like to wherever your V1 is mounted.

I have mine attched to the passenger sun visor.  I park both my visors
in the full forward position when not using them, and that turns out
to be the ideal spot for the visor clip with the V1.  If you want a
"quick and dirty" installation you can tuck the phone wire under the
center console, under the dash, then route up the dash via the seam
for the a-pillar.  If it is big enough you should be able to wedge it
into it, then wedge it between the a-pillar and the windshield.

To fully hide the wire, you may need to remove the front headliner.
If you can or know someone who can crimp an RJ11 plug onto a basic
phone wire, cut off the existing plug. Remove the curtosy fuse. Remove
and disconnect the front dome light. Pull the wires for it back to the
passenger side a-pillar.  This is where I'm not sure if the headliner
needs to come off or not (the visor will need to come off for sure). 
I had my headliner off when I did mine, I never tried this with them
on.  There is enough slack on the dome light wires to pull them down
through the a-pillar from under the dash until the spades reach the
vinyl for the a-pillar.  You can then use electrical tape to attach
the cut-off phone wire smoothly and securely right to the point where
they enter the a-pillar from under the dash.  Now pull the wires back
up, and you'll find your taped up phone wire.  Take the tape off and
pull any remaining slack you need directly.  Tuck it up behind the
headliner and your all set for a visor-mounted V1!

For a concealed display, I used 5lbs double-sided foam tape and
secured it under the binnicle on the right side of the steering
collumn and ran that phone wire through the opening for the collumn. 
When I recover my binnicle this winter, I'm going to have the new
vinyl or leather moulded around a special opening which will
specifically be made for the V1's concealed display.  End result?
Factory clean look!  Exactly what I look for in all modifications.  I
can take pictures of my installation if you'd like. Good luck.
