    Anyone have the dimensions of a Uniden 510/520XL on hand. I've tried to find it online, but with no luck. Is there a lip on the front for mounting in a dash, or have to fab a bracket behind?

    I have a Uniden Bearcat CB but can't rememebr the model right now. It has a small lip but more or lessa cause of the chrom trim is thiker and I would n't trucst it to hold it in a dash by that. I have mine mounted on one of those overhead shelf things

    That's it /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif You must be a lot better searcher than I am!

    Now one more question before I get to cutting these holes...will I cause any interference problems mounting the cb right under the radio? maybe 2" in between them.. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    <font color="green"> I don't think there should be a problem with it, both radios should be sheilded pretty well. </font color>
