Has anyone done a good concealed Valentine One install?

Hey guys

I just moved from a C6 Corvette to a FR-S and am looking for a nice stealthy mount and display for my V1. In the Corvette I had the V1 mounted where the On-Star module should have been with the RadarProjector unit that put the V1 display in the Vette's head up display.

I'm not a fan of the blendmount because I loose too much visibility with the detector under the mirror. I thought about mounting the V1 on the 3rd brake light and using the V1 remote by the USB cubby but I am worried about loosing too much forward signal detection as it passes through the car seats.

If anyone has done a good stealth setup please post some pics please.

mine is pretty out of the way, can't see it from outside the car at all.

top corner of the windshield.

however the mirror are the most stealth install you can do, kind of pricey though.
