This time I made a HUD Holder with Glass Mount Holder.
Recently I just got a Van, and the tires on it are oversized so it throws off my Speed by about 3-4 mph.
so I purchased a HUD from eBay installed it and worked great.
However where ever I mounted the HUD in my van the reflective image would either be twisted or double imaged.
So I designed this Holder to hold the HUD in one place and use self sticking 3M stickers to hold it in Place.
The HUD I purchased from eBay came with its own Transparent/Reflective screen, which is great but where ever I placed it didn't work. so I designed the holder to hold a piece of glass which is 1/16 inch or 2.3 mm thick which will hold the Reflective film in one spot and also not make the image from the HUD distorted. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Q7-5-5-Car-HUD-Head-Up-Display-GPS-Speed-Warning-System-Fuel-Consumption-Au4/222621511239?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
As you can see in the pictures it work out a lot better then I hoped.
V1 had a 2.5 mm track which worked great, but if you hit a larger bump or pot hole it fell off or moved.
Version 2 has a 2.3 mm track which keeps the glass snug and doesn't slide or pop off.
Version 2 is also a little narrower to fit exactly on steering Colum and in front of original Speedometer.
Which ever version you decide on will work, I've tried both and Version 2 works better for my needs.
