I saw some cool HUD displays that come with a stick on reflective panel for the windshield. Thought it'd be cool to display it on the screen rather than down low. It interfaces with the obd system.

I've located a set of bars. Problem is I have an adventure and the bars are gs. Will they work? What's the difference? Can I mod them? I have tubing benders and stuff.
