DashDaq mount

I got tired of it being in the way, so I modified the Edge mount and there you go, looks much better:

Built a metal plate for the back support, same size as the dashdaq, but a little smaller than the inside of the edge mount to allow to move slightly.
Drilled the 4 holes for the screws on the metal plate
Drilled a big hole for the wire plug on the metal plate.
Enlarged the bottom part of the Edge mount to accomodate the lower 2 holes
Put the screws through the metal bracket, add orings to keep them in place.
That is all.

I am considering having the plates pre-made and offer them for cheap with the dashdaq and a modified mount.

For a million bucks I CANNOT get any of the cool themes to load to my dashdaq! I got the Ford Racing splash screen to install but the themes it always has an error come up!

How do you do it? My DD is updated...

BTW Looks sick nasty!

Could you maybe post pics of the bracket and holes?
