Ever considered doing a column mount between the wheel and the dash? You could sneak one on each side of it, visually on each side of the speedo.

Otherwise I'd guess on the left between the door/left dash.

Column mount is too obvious. That'* not what I'm after. Pillar pod is garish enough.

I'm thinking to the left or right side of the radio.

That damn box of yours came in pretty handy......again!

Yes, it'* going to the left of the radio in the 'armpit' of the lower dash. Right in my line of sight, but not overly obvious. Just gotta figure out my final mounting. I have a couple ideas to play with today.

Very nice Bill.
I like your creativity.

You did a much better job on your pod than I did.
