I made this Camera Mount a long time ago, and have been liking it a lot. Got the original idea from one of the post on RX8Club.com(sorry, couldn’t find the post…), and I arranged it to something I could make with what I have in my garage…
I couldn’t take the picture of how it mounts, since I’m getting my car ready for the Cincinnati Auto Expo, and already loaded tires in rear seat. So I’ll take some pictures once I drop off the car at the Expo… For now, this is an old photo of when I was making some concept model.
Here’s the Step by Step DIY on how I made mine.
Things you need:
Metal Rod for Closet
Faux Leather (or real leather if you want…)
5″ bolts (1/4 thick?) (x2)
Nuts and Washer to fit with the bolts above (x4 each)
Spacer (something often come with flat screen TV mount, fit over the bolts, and about 2 inches long
Butterfly Nuts (x2)
Form Insulation Tube (one for the water pipe)
Now, heres the step by step on how to make the mount
Make a template of the rotary shape on the seat
Make the Plywood Backing
Prepare the Rod
Now the MANLY part. Preparing the fabric.
Assemble the headrest part.
Make camera mounting rod
Now it’s ready to be mounted! it will take a little while before the form pad settles.
This whole thing takes me 3 to 4 hours. If anyone would like, I can make one. Material cost is somewhere around $10. So make me an offer. What does 3-4 hours of labor worth for you?
