Finally got started on my stealth install this week so I thought I would share a few pics;

It's not finished yet, I am waiting on some more Perspex on order to finish off the 3rd sensor mounting on the front and also make up the custom pods for the 2 rear sensors...

Front Bumper;

123421


123422


123423


123424


As for the 3rd sensor - I am planning on cutting out the center section of the badge, mounting the sensor behind that and some Perspex - same as the other front sensors

123425


Net Radar DSP Antenna behind the fog-light cover (I was limited behind the grille with clearance)

123426


123427


Master Kill Switch and USB Cable (I am waiting on a flush mount port to tidy the USB install up)

123428



123429


LED Indication for ALP + Switch and LED for Pro DB

123432


123433


CPU mounted under driver's seat. Was tight for space behind the dash so this was the next best option. I plan on 3D printing the bracket to suit this to neaten it up.

123430


Made up the loom for the rear sensors and Pro DB

123431


Rear sensors and Pro DB TEMPORARY install. As I mentioned, I am waiting for some Perspex to finalize the rear - this will be a custom pod either side, or perhaps one across the top incorporating the Pro DB - will assess this later down the track;

123434


I'll be sure to update when the rest of the parts arrive for the front and rear sensors :D

I'm an 05 STi owner as well. Looks nice and stealthy.

Looking good. I am no master jammer guy but those rear heads look a little off to me. Could be the picture or could be wrong angle.

Thanks! Will be when I am done with the rest of the car :)

Rears were mounted in a temp. manner until the rest of the parts arrive. They will be leveled and behind the perspex once it's finalized.

Nice attention to detail! Well done!
Thanks! Hoping the center badge on the front turns out nice and clean as well

very nice
Cheers!

Will have to track down someone in Perth that owns a LTI to get the install tested once it's finished!

Where are you getting your Perspex from ?
I get mine on eBay - seller is based in the UK and can custom cut sizes to suit your application;

How did you go about getting the custom front housings done? Did you hire someone to produce the 3D Printed housings? How did you coordinate getting the perspex cut in advance to fit your designs? I suppose you just waited until after you finished the housings to then take the measurements for the Perspex to send to your perspex supplier?

Could you post an eBay link to the seller you bought from? Thanks in advance!

What's a "Pro DB?" I googled and found nothing related.

Custom housings were hand made - I measured up roughly the dimensions I needed and ordered the perspex in 2 halves. I then took measurements and made paper/cardboard templates. These were then cut out with a jigsaw.

Supplier link is 2 comments up at the bottom of my multi-quote :)

Did you used to have a white STI? There's a very similar install floating around, I might have seen it on RALF? Similar down to the ProDB. Very nice install! Like said above, get tested. By the pictures it looks like the rear sensors are out a bit

Yep! Sadly that car was written off a while ago.

Upgraded to the 05 and being black it makes going stealth a lot easier.

Will do, once they are mounted correctly I'll get some testing done :D

Look very clean, but if the heads are following the contour of the bumper, they're toed out.

That's a clean install. Definitely would like to see how it looks with the Perspex.

I was waiting for this to be spotted. The non bubble side of the sensor is toed slightly in to get the sensors as center/level as possible.

Unfortunately it's a trade off to get the Perspex to sit flush in order to keep this stealth. The center head will be perfectly level and straight.

Toughest guns we have to jam are the TruSpeed/TruCam - so I will be testing this setup with those to see if there is any PT with this sensor setup.

With the concealed Poliscan setups we have here, the slight toe outwards will aid in the detection of them earlier. I have spoken to a few installers who have various mounting angles for Poliscan defense and the usual setup is; Front L 10 degree out, Center 0 degree (straight). Front R 10 degree out. This setup will maintain beam overlap from the ALP sensors to defend against hand held LIDAR as well.

Excellent work. Looking forward to the completed pics
Thanks :)

Last of the parts arrived for the rear section of the install.

Thanks to @chakeubeam for the NetRadar antenna to add rear radar onto my system :D

I'm going to also try something that I haven't seen in any of my install browsing thus far;

After toying with the idea of running a dedicated android phone for the ALP system, I don't really have the space to mount it in an easy access location. Mainly due to the fact I have more gauges than Xzibit can poke a stick at...

I also didn't want to use my phone as that is used for music/nav etc and I just prefer a dedicated loud speaker for the AL system.

I also didn't want a phone sitting in the car to attract unwanted attention from potential thieves.

I have come up with a solution which I think will look very clean and inconspicuous once installed.

I found a rear view mirror on eBay from a company called Germid - they manufacture OE rear view mirrors with reverse camera/dash cameras etc.

The one I have bought happens to run Android on a dedicated screen built into the mirror; Model is LN-050LA

It has Bluetooth, WIFI, built in dash cam/reverse cam and also audio output. I will be running the AL external speaker wired into the mirror output as you would using an Android phone.

The mirror has a specific boot app - this will allow me to select the AL connect app to run as soon as the mirror powers up.

I will also be wiring a mute button into the AL controller for muting as per @Flonase has done on his Audi TT.

This will allow me to add GPS lockouts for the NetRadar system and control the whole ALP from a stealth mute button and the rear view mirror.

Will hopefully have the time to attack this project in the next couple of weeks.

Stay tuned
