Rob, that's a good call. The other "bad" thing about the DDM piece is it's shiney. I would think that it would be annoying as hell with the top down. But what do I know, I don't have one.

Yeah, I like it for line of site.

Although it gets more track action than street, I still want to drive the car when its nice out. I am considering pulling the carpet and spraying down bed-liner on the floor...when I get to go home in november.

Not the best picture in the world but I used the back off an old grey plastic clipboard. No reflection in your eyes from the sun.
