I finally got around to removing the Escort ZR3 laser shifters from the Dragon when I had it home. I will be installing these in the M as it will be the one seeing street time. Friday night I started the job. It is amazing how much time you can burn installing the built in units, lol.  Radar and laser detection is covered with the V1.  Started with the rear. Ran the wire from the license plate area, inside the …

Slapped new brake pads in for a buddy and helped him with his V1 hardwire install.  There are a couple of ways to do the V1’s in the 996, I usually like to pull power from a plug in the center console.  On a non-auto dimming mirror car, you can hide everything up in the sunroof control/light area, but with the dimming mirror, space is a little tighter. Brake pad replacement. Starting the V1 install.  Running the wire up over …
