Finally Installed My CB

Well I have had the CB sitting around for a few years. It's off another truck I had. I finally got motivated today to start the project. I wanted dual whips on the mirrors because I like that look. I started off by taking the mirrors off and runing the wires thru the fender walls and then thru the stock wire harness. I had to notch out the mirror housing for the wire to come thru. I mounted the Cb to the front of my 08 console. A dremel quickly notched out a space so I could mount it the height I wanted. I cant find the power cord so I will have to buy one tommorrow to power it up. It took about 3 hours for disassembly and reassembly. I like the clean look of not seeing wires.

The front.



the side



wires are fed thru the factory tube so you can't see them



wires fed thru the mirrors



Its a bad pic, but this is where it's mounted



I'll get some better pics when I get the power cord hooked up.

I like how you ran the coax for the whips, clean!

I just sold my Galaxy last year, it had some work to it and it would talk. I think you just motivated me to install a radio in this one. Thanks! As if the to do list wasn't long enough for the truck...

Just curious, Mike? Are your whips 8 feet apart? I really like the look as well, but I've always heard they need to be 8 feet apart.

Another fine looking job. You've given me some inspiration, thanks.
