RE: [DML] RE: GPS and other electrical accessories.

FYI, I know this sounds goofy after all the destruction I did to my car by turning it into a time machine,
but before I did that I was very concerned about making any changes to the car.
So I ran a ground to the same ground point as the radio and other parts, and then tapped into
the contant power source via my wire harness adapter so that I would not harm the original harness.
That said, I have drilled holes into the rear body of my car to mount props, but a little bondo
and paint would restore it to normal and look fine if I ever wanted to put the car back to normal.
Not trying to do a commercial, but if anyone needs one of my harness adapters just email me.

My suggestion for additional electronics is to purchase a cigarette lighter like connector (come in ones, twos, threes, fours, etc.) and wire it directly to the power in side of one of the circuit breakers. The whole metal platform should provide the ground (earth or return). Place the connector in-between the driver and the passenger at the back of the console. No need to make holes or do a major disassembly. The multiple versions typically have internal circuit breakers or fuses, if not put one in the line from the circuit breaker. This will provide a place for recharging your cell phone, blue tooth, and other not full time portables. This is practical for two reasons. First, it won't damage the cigarette lighter socket...and secondly, it will reduce the load on the wiring and perhaps number of fuse replacements.Incidentally, I've found that a good map is more reliable than GPS. I can't tell you how many stories I've about people who have found themselves at the far, dead end of a one way road, locked gate, or whatever. By the way, I participated in the design and fabrication of the first GPS receiver ever.Al Robertstwodelo2@xxxxxxxxxxxxx#4639/#16049
