OK guys, you might not want to do this, but I thought it threw and worst case is i have to go to the stealer and order a new A pillar.

1. Find the location you want to mount the DH.
2. Take a very sharp saw, I used a Japanese saw. Be careful, don't slip or you will scratch the heck out of the a pillar.
3. Important, you have make the cut level from left to right. If you want the DH to be tilted up slightly you can bend the bracket a little but not much.

1. Drill a hole in the side of the pillar the size of the wire right next to the rubber window flange.
2. Remove the pillar and with a razor cut the plastic so you can slide the wire in from the side when installing the pillar.

1. I wrecked the small aluminum bracket that came with the DH, so I used a piece of 2 x 2 angle aluminum and made a new one.
2. I sanded it and cleaned it up and the thickness fit perfectly snug into the saw cut.
3. I didn't, but you could put some silicone or epoxy inside the pillar to hold it in place. Mine fit perfect so I did not at this time.

1. I used the Velcro provided with the DH. This is the finished product.
