    they must also get a .jpg/.gif in between them as well .

    Good to here you getting back behind the wheel! I take it you are feeling much better by now!
    Enjoy driving around!

    Man the smileys became so many that I can't choose what I want every time! I get stack browsing them :P

    About the image posting, that is what I do, but at least when I see my posts I see them as links instead of pictures. In my post above do you see pictures in between the text? because I see links and then all the pictures are at the end of the post in a frame that says attached images or something

    mugurg are you planing on placing the camera outside? My first install was with the camera behind my grill but that didn't work out that well... My biggest problem was condensation on the lens. even though the housing with the PCB was waterproof the lens was exposed. so after a rainy day (VERY common here in Boston) I would get condensation on the transparent cup covering the lens tube, removing the protective cup made things worse. The the next problem was that when it was raining the water drops on the lens would distort the picture too much to be useful. Also a minor issue was dirt! I had to clean the lens every couple of weeks.





    I never really got any pictures with the grill installed... But it was really not easy to see there was a camera there. very conspicuous

    I ended up moving it behind my mirror on the windshield. It has been WAY better. The only slight problem I have is reflection of my dash. I will be trying some polarizer films to solve that.





    even though the lens is really obvious from the outside, you don't see it much from the drivers seat. the passenger can get a good look but its in no way in there field of view.

    I still haven't found the courage to cut up my dash for installing an LCD to experiment with... the worst part it that I need depth if I am going to use any lenses above the LCD and I don't have any space... Also I am thinking of selling the car in September so I am hesitant on irreversibly damaging the dash...

    I feel stupid... So what did you change to make them show up?
    Thanks for this Genesisfactor. I've been around for a few years but I never spent the time to figure it out. Although I assume it should be something simple that I missed.

    Damn I feel stupid!

    That is exactly what I do and it doesn't seem to work for me

    I Attach the images and copy their address, I click the insert image button and paste the address (making sure not to include the http:// twice) and it comes up as a link!

    Any way thanks for trying Genesis! I'll figure it out. When you edited my post did add the pictures from scratch? were the [ img ] [/img] missing? I edited the post to make sure they are there and they do appear to be there but is still doesn't work.

    Back to the subject, has anybody seen from up close the BMW hud? I did some searching but I found nothing on how its built.
    My idea was that if info come from Ibus to the hud them there is a chance we could fake an ibus? and use the unit by itself? Of course something tells me that the unit it self will cost an arm and a leg at least

    I also went a similar route. I used the cover off of two small radio shack project enclosures and just screwed them together. Left a small 1/4" gap, but I just used tape to cover it. The wires hanging down are for auto-iris lenses. The whole for the lens was made wth a hole saw.

    I attached a small L-bracket I made out of flat ABS. I just mounted it in a vice and blow torched it at the vice edge until it folded over. I screwed this to the camera and it slips up under the headliner instead of the glass. Almost invisible from the outside.

    ok, i am seriously confused!

    what does mounting a camera to look forward has to do with the whole HUD idea??? I thought i read the whole thread, but i guess i lost you somewhere .
    At first i was under impression that the lense'ed box will be kind of like a projector of the image onto the windshield - but this is certainly not what you guys are trying to accomplish

    Thanks
    Alex
