I'm finally almost "finished" with my CB setup so I took some pictures.
RX-65 hardwired high.
The mount. I believe everything in the car should be secure, and I've had the piss poor Bel suction cups come off enough times to not trust them.
I took a strip of 1/8" thick aluminum and cut a small piece off. I drilled pilot holes and screwed self tapping screws through. Then I removed the screws and reinserted them with the bracket in place. I cut off the threaded end with a Dremel cutoff wheel to make the windshield side flat.
I cut a piece of 3M dual lock tape in half and applied the pieces to the aluminum, then put two full strips on the windshield. I didn't need that much on the windshield, but I wanted to be able to adjust it for leveling the detector and accessing the buttons.
The end of the detector touches the aluminum, not the windshield, or else it would be looking for UFOs like the Cobras.
Cobra 25 LTD. No night watch. No weather channels. Just bear reports...well...all the other BS on the radio too, unfortunately. The mounting bracket is attached to the lid for the storage compartment with bolts, washers and wing nuts so it's not going anywhere. The power comes straight from the battery, under the dash, and travels a short distance up the front of the dash. The coax for the antenna just comes from behind the seat for now because I just installed it last night and haven't hidden it yet.
I put electrical tape around the chrome on the front so it wouldn't reflect the sun straight up into my eyes.
The Wilson 1000 is a little more than 5 feet tall... It scrapes on all the common 9' drive throughs.
About a week ago I had an unfortunately incident with a bird and the magnet mount version. I tried the magnet mount on the trunk for safety but it just didn't work the same, so I ordered the roof mount hardware, grew a pair and drilled the hole for it.
The only place in the roof I could find that wasn't obstructed by the sunroof or a cross member was above the dome light. I removed the dome light, drilled a pilot hole from the bottom, and then used an Antenex 3/4" hole saw to finish from the top.
If you're going to drill a hole for an antenna, use an Antenex hole saw or equivalent. Using a regular drill bit will not make a clean hole because the sheet metal is very thin.
