    Does anyone have pics with their V1 mounted in a 360? I need to Hard wire the power supply & mount it discreetly, and be able to unplug it quickly as I am in Ontario, where the commies have deemed it illegal. Thanks for your time.

    pull out the radio, hardwire the positive into the ignition on wire of the radio, ground to metal the run the phone cord along the firewallto the headliner and the to the mirror area. Put the suction cup apparatus next to the mirror on the driver side. See my post on your last thread for pics in my TR

    DOn't be too worried about it - they won't set upa roadblock or anything for a radar detector.

    Alternatively get the remote kit that put the lights on you steering column

    I mounted mine above the rear view mirror... blends in up there such that it generally goes unnoticed. Further, I have it setup so its easy to pull out with nothing but an unidentifiable phone plug hanging out.

    Don't have a pic in my 360, but here is a pic in my Stradale... same setup.

    Run the Valentine hardwire kit from the switched positive in the overhead light and run it out between headliner and windshield, leaving the dual-plug black block of the hardwire kit hanging right there (where windshield and headliner come together, above the rear view mirror). Then get a short 3" phone cord (like come with many phones) to run from that block to your V1. Make sure you have a newer V1 (last couple years)... they are thinner than the older ones and fit better than the one pictured in that link.

    Hope that helps,
