    So I search, there seem to be multiple thread out there but since it is very important, I hope I can get your SME give me the insight :

    1. Disconnect the 12V negative and wait for 30 min. ( airbag )
    2. To run the Viofo dashcam (12V) from windshield, slide wire between windshield and headliner with credit card, correct ?
    3. Any detail how to unmount the side plastic cover ? I do know it is tricky ( all Utuber skip over this ).
    4. Once it reach the side where the SRD logo is, pop the weather strip and thread the cable -BEHIND- the curtain airbag... try to stay along the existing wire and we are safe ???
    5. it is standard dashcam so I can extend ( tap into ACC fuse ) ....

    Let me know if I miss anything ?! last thing I want is cause issue with airbag/safety thing.

    Use both hands. (That's also why they can't film it.)

    3) Pull off the black rubber door frame surround (just along the pillar). Now you have access to pull on the plastic pillar trim.
