    Re: HUD for the CTS-V?

    The company I was working with to create the wiring harness was in completely over their head. After working with them for more than 8 weeks and hearing "we will be ready to make a prototype in a few weeks" for more than a month they finally admitted they couldn't source the connectors and terminals. For the last few weeks I've been trying to buy all the parts and this past Thursday I got in the last of the connectors. Finding all the connectors, terminals and tools was very challenging. Two of the connectors I need are made by Yazaki and only ONE of their US factory authorized distributor sells these particular connectors and they won't even talk to you unless you're buying thousands of connectors. I've spent more than $350 for the connectors, terminals and wire, and another $150 for the crimp tools but I have enough connectors to make 25 harnesses. I will need to purchase more terminals to make more than a few.

    Anyway I need the wiring harness in order to fire up the HUD in order to get positioned correctly and this week I will be making the harness. A new custom visor is needed to cover up the projector and have been working on a prototype made out of stiff paper. Still looking for a company that will be able to make the visor out of plastic and leather. I have contacted a few companies including the one that makes the CTS dash to see if they interested in helping me out. Once I get the HUD working, I'll post some more pics.

    Would love to hear more. After going to the track, having a heads up display would make shift so much easier.

    I'd love to hear more, also. I've been looking to get a V, and was bummed there's no HUD. I found this while researching what it would take to make it happen.

    Why not use an ipod touch with a HUD mount? It will give you speed and direction etc

    Not quite the same, esp in respects to the speedo and other goodies.
