Well, my Hitachi is taken apart, all over my reloading bench in the basement. She’s one complicated creature.

I designed and 3D printed a phone dock that will be installed into my ash tray. Tested the fit this morning and it looks pretty good. If I can figure out how, I will run the cable down through the dash to my headunit.

Willing to sell them?  I asked about a phone dock/cradle before and was told "put your phone down when you driving!!!! you could kill someone"  Was a good laugh. 

 

Whats underneath the ashtray?  Bottom of the dash?  I never looked to see.  Imagine you can just drill through it?

There's actually nothing below the ashtray.... I was thinking why not put the ashtray aside and print something that fits the entire opening in the dash.. then drill through that....
Those ashtrays are stupid expensive for some reason.... atleast the ones I saw for sale were 125 to 140....

Nice work on that....
I wish I had better access to a 3d printer... even a Bridgeport and a lathe...

That was option #2. I figured it was just easier to double-sided tape the dock into the bottom of the ashtray. I just need to drill a small hole in the bottom for the cable to pass through. What's nice about this is, I can close the ashtray lid when the phone is removed, and nobody is the wiser.

Oh that's cool so it lives inside the ashtray..... I though it was gonna stick up above it so it couldn't close....

So, my giant ass phone doesn’t fit below the windshield. Instead of having a 5 degree tilt back, I need to tilt the phone about 10 degrees forward. The ash tray is just too far forward on the dash to have enough vertical room. Will try printing Rev B tomorrow.

Make the phone dock fit the ash tray hole, then you do not need to drill a hole.

Why would anyone want their phone up there where it can be seen, if you bent over and looked at it and a cop seen that they could write you a distracted driving ticket, your not even supposed to look at it in OR or WA.

So I can watch the GPS, or change songs from the lock screen. It's a great spot for it.

Rev B of my phone dock works like a charm.

Now onto other things, like my H4 e-code headlight harness.

All finished. Used Molex Mini-Fit Jr. connectors for the ends, that way I can pass them through the grommet holes.

I’ll most likely just run standard 60/55W H4’s.

Nice work on the harness.  Curious if the Molex Mini-Fit Jr. connectors will stand up to the amperage draw.
