Valentine 1 Install Question

Recommended Posts

I'm going to hardwire the Valentine 1 and the remote display in my Carrera coupe today, and am wondering if anybody who had done the install on a coupe has pictures or can describe how to hide the wire down the a-pillar and get it under the dash, and run it to the center console for power. Do you have to remove the a-pillar cover (and, if so, how)? I've seen a few DIY sites for the install, but they gloss over this part of the install. Any other tips also appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Got it installed. Used Rob in WA's recommendation for hanging it using the sun visor clip, inserting it between the headliner support and the windshield--very sturdy, and you don't have the suction cup marks on the windshield, so you can't see it unless you're almost right up against the windshield. I had it installed to the right of the rear view mirror, since I couldn't get the driver's visor further forward than 90 degrees from the roof when it was on the left side of the mirror. With the concealed display mounted on top of the steering wheel housing, there's no need to have it right above your head.

I ended up having it installed by Erick at Custom Exotica in Mountain View (I remember Paulsha having it done there). They charged me $50, which was too good to pass up. Great install, no interior trim panels removed (except, of course, fuse panel surround, where they spliced into the power). Highly recommended.
