I have a question. I am thinking of getting rid of my trunk lip mount for the cb
and drilling it into the center of the trunk. Location shown here by the lock ring.
It is a fiberglass trunk deck and I am wondering if it will be strong enough to hold the antenna when it is on the car. When it is off there will be the 3/8" coupler showing and I'll have a rubber cover for it.
Here is the spot I will be drilling through.
I understand that I will probably have to add some kind of support on the outside and inside of the trunk deck for the coupler, maybe a painted fender washer.
Here is a clean shot of the trunk deck.
The antenna is only on the car during trips and the same for the lip mount.
