Alright, so I'm a pretty paranoid and self- conscious guy but does using the wood seem cheap? I was going to use aluminum but have a lot of wood laying around in the house. I don't think it's humiliatingly cheap. Some guys on a car forums thought it was hideous, other friends think it's fine. Thoughts?

 

Does its job well, that's all I care about

If it's functional then why would you go out and spend extra money on it? It does its job well. And it's not like you see the mount in the actual video. Maybe if you painted it then you could free yourself of your mad paranoia :lol:

Yeah I got you, I just like to get a lot of input on whatever work I have. Things to improve, things I do well, I don't JUST like hearing good things. Also have to hear the bad, but that gets to me lol

Bump, my friend and I decided to go for a drive today. We usually go on backroads that we've pre scouted, normally empty, and away from residential areas. Racing in traffic is a big no no for us. We like turns :). Look at it in HD!

Yeah I live in a valley in the countryside. Very serene, especially in the winter when it's covered with snow
