+ 1 on the A-pillar mount. Matches well and is a perfect spot for the monitor. You can also completely hide the wires. Only thing Is the bolt the holds it in will stick out a little and is not painted. Im sure if it really bothered someone they could paint it.
I also have my MP-8 control mounted to the side of the A-Pillar mount. Works pretty slick and both adjustments can be made in the same spot in seconds.
Dry vs oiled debate.... I dont think there is an issue with filtration with oiled or with dry. If the oiled version is used by a customer, and he services it properly and re-oils it.... It will filter just fine. Dry filters are a bit easier when it comes to service time. I clean mine with basic FANTASTIC and rinse the dry filter from the inside out with warm water in the laundry tray. Let her dry to a reasonable level and toss it back in. I like the dry filters simply because you dont need to buy service kits with the emulsifying cleaner and oil. Use what you have laying around for the dry filters.
Props on the set up. I did mine exactly the same way. Looks like you couldn't use the screw supplied w/the pillar mount either. The one thing I did different though is I have my MP-8 mounted inside the cab under the dash. Also the screw I used for the pillar mount is countersunk and you can't really see it. Otherwise great job.
