Last year sometime, I saw a website that advertised a camera mount that attached to the passenger seat headreast bar. Now I can't find the site or anything similar. Does anyone know of such a mounting device?

I'll take a pic of the one I have that a friend made for me. Pretty nice design, mounts between the headrests of the pass & driver's seat. I'll post a pic here in a bit. :thumbsup:

Please post up that pic!

I tried over at Mustang World but did not see anything in the how-to section.

Whatever I make doesn't have to be pretty, it just has to hold my Sony Mini-DV camera in place and not be in the way.

Yea, the one I have was painted black but the paint started to come off so I duct-taped it up. It's not pretty, but gets the job done. Made out of hollow tube steel and has a universal mount in the middle. All the videos I've taken have been pretty stable and it's pretty easy to take on/off. I'll take the pic and post it up tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Thanks!! That is basically the same design that I came up w/ at the end of last summer, but I never got off my butt and made it. It is simple and effective w/ the universal mount. That is going to be one of many projects that I've got to work on in the coming months. Thanks!!

That design looks interesting. Does anyone have any info on a harness bar mount for a camera?

I like the design of the second mounting unit that mounts only to the passenger side headrest.

I can make one like that so it would easily mount to the headrest bar.

Thanks guys!:thumbsup:
