Cam, the bar is aluminum flat stock about 1/4" x 3/4" and is very rigid with the mount configuration I have. And I couldn't resist painting it a very close to Inferno Red!I think it's cool...............well mostly because it red........and we know that adds 20hp right there buddy.
Buttt, how springy is the flat bar??. Is it metal or plastic?. Do you think you'll end up with a pogo stick??.

Nah.....wasn't Bipto's made from a wood closet pole?????Looks just like Bipto's mount.And he ran his this past spring.
What the H!?!! Bipto gets a wooden pole in his closet?Nah.....wasn't Bipto's made from a wood closet pole?????
If we know he got the pole, then it's not in the closet anymore...What the H!?!! Bipto gets a wooden pole in his closet?
DAT, it rests on top of the sleeves you see in the pics and is wedged tightly against the bottom of the headrest.can you take some pictures of it off the car. does it just rest on the headrest poles?
Red, not sure about a cost as it was made from stuff I had in my garage. The tripod head would be the most expensive part. It was necessary to maintain the adjustability and quick release mount of the camcorder.How much to make me one???
HW, the test video I've done doesn't show the need for rubber bushings to isolate any hfv's, but that might be the stabilization electronics of the camcorder keeping it clear.any rubber bushings at the head rest end to absorb small high frequency vibrations?
Funny!!!What the H!?!! Bipto gets a wooden pole in his closet?
Let us know how it comes out DAT. Always lookin' for a way to improve!:thumbs_u:ahhh, very clever. thanks for the idea. im gonna go to road america next month and was wondering what i would use for a mount. im gonna stop by the shop tomorrow and see if i can rig something up out of unistrut. might weigh 30 pounds when its down, but it sure as well aint gonna break in half
I would definitely use the tripod head if you have one vs. a bolt so you maintain adjustability of the camera direction. The reason my flat stock is on top of the sleeves is to allow clearance over the top of the seats. This setup should clear the bolsters on your SRT8 seats.will do. the SRT8 seats are a bit different so i need to make sure i keep the support up high (the side bolsters go up quite a bit). yours looks like it would be pleanty of clearance.
what did you use for a head? i was thinking about using just a bolt if i could find out what size it was. otherwise see if i could dismantle one of my tripods.
