So i've recently installed a dash cam in my VX, its great so far.
The suction cup mount seems strudy enough. But I got to thinking, I've got a perfectly good plastic ball/nub there going unused (I've opted to ditch the gigantic rear view mirror and see how I get on with just the side mirrors).
Perhaps, there could be a way to utalise the existing bracket, which I've measured to be a 30mm ball. All that would be needed would be a 30mm female ballsocket (most likely need to be plastic) with a 1/4 inch thread attached to the bottom.
This standard thread would not only be useful for the dashcam, but also gadget/tripod mounts. Say for a gopro for trackday recording.
I thought this idea was conceptually simple, but several google searches are proving different.
Are there any 3D printing enthuasiasts out there? Althought what little knowledge I have of 3D printing, i'd assume the material would be too brittle for this application.
Anyway, I thought I'd extend this idea to the forum, it may have some interest/use for others. Obviously only for those wanting to ditch the rear view mirror, but it sounds like a few have gone this way. Let me know your thoughts.
