Couple of updates.
I believe in that spot the huge fan won't help with sharpness and stability (they were touching each other). SO I moved it to the other side, using the same holes as one of the horns, mounting the horn in the bracket I shaped hammer style. It's pretty thick steel and solid, and I also used the same strong tape under the heavy duty bolt I have there. I have more room to play now.
This is how I have it set up now. I have it wrapped in tape now while I was working with it in the garage, didn't want to harm the finish (not before the jet water test).
It's great that the grille lifts in an arc, so the camera can be extremely close to it, or even sticking out from it, since the hood goes forwards and up. I just don't want it too show at all. As it is, closing and lifting up won't touch, scrape it or make it move (not more than the car itself does).
I'll put more pictures in my worklog thread with more details (see signature). I'm just talking about the gps and dvr issues here from now on.

Now I just found out a sweet spot for side cameras: UNDER the rearview mirrors. This is a small little pocket I've found:
The wiring goes to control the mirror and a little engine that retracts it. I have access to it from the inside the trick is to get a low profile, wide angle camera that fits that spot. Any suggestions?
