I fitted my Mobius Actioncam today. For more info on the Mobius see this thread: http://www.fordowner...d info in there

 

I hard wired it in with this 12v-5v transformer from ebay, tapping into the ignition live I fitted for my autodimming mirror and grounding it to the roof ground bolt.

I cut the adapter down so it was about 50cm long as all the cable wasnt needed.

 

I then finished it off with some plastic corregated cable tidy,

I ordered to cables with opposite facing right angled connectors, but am waiting for one of them to be delivered still.  My plan is to run the cam power cable the other way and up the same cable tidy as the rear view mirror, thus only having one cable going up to the roof lining - this will look alot better/neater.

 

Cam now come on when the car is started and turns off when the ignition is turrned off, cam runs on continuous loop, meaning when the sd card is full, it will delete the oldest video.

I'm looking in the next couple of weeks to fit this mirror and one of those led ignition barrel so I can fit some footwell lights. I thinking of cutting into the led cable for the earth for the mirror. Also waiting on a submarine lighting interior light.

Not really on the same circuit mate. Some have used the interior light permanent feed, but this is always on, however the battery saver relay will turn it off after 20 mins or something. This isn't the right way to do it (but deffo a lazy way lol).

The ignition barrel ring and foot well lights need to work in conjunction with your interior light. IE they go off when the interior light goes off. You couldn't use the wiring for these for you mirror as when the interior light goes off the power to the mirror would too.

The mirror really needs a feed from an ignition live so whenever the ignition is switched on the mirror is working, best way to accomplish this is to piggy back a fuse as I suggested before

Cheers only thing really planned for the exterior are painting the drums. I want to get it lowered and maybe the windows tinted too at some point. Waiting until the weather gets better and then gonna get cracking. I need to decide whether I'm gonna do the lowering myself to save cash depends how much people a garage will charge I've lowered and done suspension before so shouldn't be a problem and have the equipment, its just whether I can be bothered!

I painted mine with silver hammerite. The front calipers are in gold.

I received an extension cable today and have now rerouted the power for the dashcam up the same trunking as the autodimming rear view mirror, so looks really neat now and only one trunking going up to the headliner. :D
