Default Aftermarket HUD

Hey y'all I love the corvettes HUD I thinks it's pretty [email protected]$$. I was thinking of finding one to put in my 01 SS and I found a kit on amazon I was wondering if anyone else has one of these. Btw the kit mounts to your dash and is connected to your OBD-II port.

Pretty expensive, why not just get an app for your phone, it reflects on the windshield, does the same basic thing but it's free lol

Cars with STOCK HUDs have a special windshield bottom for that to project against.

Since you don't have that, you probably will not see anything during the day.

Not worth it IMO
