This is the plexiglass mount I made for mine. Works like I charm.

It looks as though your headliner survived just fine. Any issues with looseness or wonky clips? I'm guessing you've removed them a few times as you've developed new mounts, and from what I can see, the headliner isn't cranky about it.
I like your solution. Nice and simple.

Yeah, the headliners can be pretty sensitive. You can flex them a little bit before they get angry and permanently crease. Just to be extra careful, I pulled all three pins, the coat hooks, and the plastic panels away from it before carefully prying it down. They go back in place just fine if you're conscientious. It's a fair bit of extra work, but I'm hyper anal retentive about tucking wires.

The fortunate thing is the holes in the headliner for the plastic pins are the same diameter as the M4 rivnut flange, and I designed the post of the bracket to fit inside that diameter as well. Ends up being very little messing with it aside from pushing the cable through, which wasn't really too challenging once it was loose.

Cheers!

That is an elegant and simple solution, nicely done!

As usual with my goofy, quick mods, I got out the rivet nuts and decided to figure the rest out later...

I put an M4 nut in the spot the left plastic roof liner clip goes then designed & printed a bracket that had a wire clearance groove and would hold the cam as flush as possible to the roof liner. I ended up making it a bit too flush so I added a couple washers notched to clear the wire. Itís plenty rigid enough but should give if it gets a good whack.









Iíll send the file if anyone wants, but itís sized for a Blackvue camera. I can also update the file and send a printable version for any camera mount if you send me the dimensions.

Same here. I would GLADLY pay someone for a similar mount. I just had a Thinkware U1000 installed and looking for a clean way to mount the rear camera.

I just screwed in the mount that came with camera. Made it a little tight to slide the camera onto the mount, but itís solid.

i like the concept but my goodness does that look horrible. I just used a plain money clip, slide it onto my headliner and double sided taped the dash cam mount onto it. looks just as good as these custom mounts people are making.

Alright fella...time to show a pic of this plain money clip used to help mount the rear cam. Just curious to see how it looks compared to other mounts already mentioned in this thread!

Double sided tape here in AZ generally doesn't survive the summer. Had more than one phone mount fail in the past.

I want a rear view camera that can work as a replacement for the mirror. I have a great view of my spare tire, and while I'm okay with it my wife complains every time she drives the 4Runner. Keeps her from driving it I suppose, but sometimes it needs to happen.

The clips i had weren't wide enough for the base of the mount for my cam so i actually just stuck two money clips side by side. cheap solution and not noticeable. cut/trim the clips as you wish for a more minimalist look but i just left them as is. (**EDIT** i dont know why my pics always uplaod sideways)

Looks great! definitely can have a sleek look at the end like you said. Been looking for a solution so I can have an excuse to get the Blackvue 2Chan system of some sort, not really seeing any benefits going with the Cloud compatible cameras myself. BTW You can select options on the photo uploaded onto the website and click on rotate. Afterwards, the picture should be rotated to your liking!
