Ordered a camera mount for the coupe.

Not wanting to drop megabucks on the harness bar and camera mount I found a suction cup type mount from ioport that seemed to work good enough for some NSX owners. It should be here Friday and I will put it through its paces and report back.

Here's what I just got....

I had good luck with this package. I purchased it at Smile because they were ~$20 cheaper than anywhere else for that model. I used it on the right rear window and ran through the Dragon ~15 times without any issues. The only problem I had was that it leaves a little rubber residue behind. It create little rings that you have to rub off. But I expect any suction cup mount will do that.

Here's the stuff I have....
