    If the red arrow is a ground wire, it's in the wrong place. It is a direct short to your radio in that spot. The best thing to do is make sure there is no paint between the top of the stud and the bottom of the bracket (blue arrow), this connection needs to be metal-to-metal. Then, grind the paint from the side of the bracket (yellow arrow), and drill a hole there attach the ground wire. If that's not a ground wire, then nevermind... carry on...:D

    no it is a grond, at the bottom of my post i said i know it is in the wrong spot i realized it just after i too the pic.

    i used it insead of grounding though the mount because 1) the mound swivels and i dont want intermetant ground.

    and 2) if i remove all paint and do get good ground though it the rust would quickly be in there and kill my ground.


    oh and i donot think it will rip off it is 14"x1 1/4" plate welded to my 3/16th wall bumper with 7018;s ant going no ware, then again i dont do rock so i dont have to worry much about that.

    might move to my rear once i build that bumper
