    I didn't post this in Communication Forum because its more mech. than elec.
    I got fed-up with the clip that came with (Cobra). I made this from the hook on a coat hangar. A little heat and bend. Watch-out, threads in the chassis are metric.:D

    The Cobra comes with the typical wide "U" shaped bracket plus thumbwheel screws threaded into the chassis. If you look at LMC or the factory parts manual, you'll find a healthy rib inside the roof skin, just behind the windsheild. I actually cut a rectangle in the headliner, but with the CB there and sunvisors, it doesn't show; not that I care. :haha: I used sheetmetal screws into the rib.

    Ya know, its funny too. With the CB mounted up there, its like cops give me the wave off. I go to work at three in the morning, when cops are picking on bar closers. They'll follow me long enough to check on the 'puter, and then back off. I think its because of the Mic cord hangin down.
    I don't know, happened more than once.:D
