Yes, please show us. I have the 8500 and ordered the hardwire kit. I have the Beltronics RX 65 (bought out by Escort I think) in my red charger and ordered a hardwire kit for it as well. I am apprehensive about pulling back headliners or pillars to install and was thinking about having it done at the dealer. So please show some pics

I took this picture to show the wood dash kit I had painted in Silver Steel. But you can see my escort, to the left.
I have always added a tint stripe to the inside of my front windshield. So when I suction cup mount the radar, you don't see the suction cups or the radar detector, from the outside. If you look, in the picture, you can see the escort wire going just behind the rear view mirror. It then goes through the slot, in the middle of the headliner. Run the wire towards the driver A pillar. You will need to pop back the A pillar. Run the passport wire through that. Then work your way down the side of the dash. Find a power source to tap from.
I even read that some 300Cforum members shortened the wire length by tapping into the rear view mirror for power. I believe the SRT Chargers come with a powered (auto dim feature, etc.) mirror.
If you have other vehicles. You can buy more hard wire kits and install them in all of your vehicles. Then take the one escort with you from car to truck to car again, etc. Daily commute, family vacations/road trips, etc.
