The modular socket on the RD was removed and 4 conducter flat cable was soldered directly to the RD's circuit board and potted with dielectric epoxy. Also, the red arrow were buffed with 0000 Scotchbrite to a matte finish to eliminate reflective glare.
I don't smoke, so I'm planning on converting the sunglass holder to a control panel for my electronic countermeasures. I'll post pictures whenever I get it done.

This is how I did it on my Acura. The V1 display replaced the flocked plastic "Not An Ashtray" change bin. The red buttons are "kill" switches.
