Cool New Detector Install

I'm jus fitting a Snooper S6-R and want to put the head unit in the space where the sunglasses go and take a feed from the switch for the moon roof.

Has anyone done anything like this, got any advice or even just know how to pop the glasses holder out of its hinges ?

Any ideas much appreciated

Jon

imho
..that is going to be a tough one. I looked at that spot and recall the frame structure in the roof rather unforgiving beyond the depth of the sunglass holder. I would remove the entire overhead unit to get a full feel for the hinge mechanism and the roof structure.

Good Luck
Kevin
