Longacre lti installation

This may save me a few hours removing parts and head scratching ....
Anybody got a quick and easy installation guide ?
I don't have a cubbyhole in the center at the moment , so I'm looking for a good spot to place it

I have an AIM Solo lap timer, but with that being said, I have found the best location to be just above the left side air vent using a suction cup mount on the windsheild.

This lets me look at the lap timer without fully removing my eyes from the road ahead and its within easy reach to turn on/off and/or make selections as needed while I have the harnesses on.

Not sure if this method will work with your timer but thought I'd mention it.

Thanks for the reply tom .
She will use this for autocross initially , so your concerns about "line of sight" will only really be applicable in the future when doing a full lap .
Maybe next year ...
Once she got home today I had a quick look , and its a perfect size to be installed onto the "batwing" as it's out of the way , but can be seen and is easy enough to reach before each session .
I also figure this will be an easy place to start from when routing wires .
It's another job on the to-do list
