Hey all, what would I need to put a cb into the void left by my long gone factory radio? I know that its a 1.5 din space, and my old cb is waaay too small. Thanks:) :)

I decided to put it in the dash after my tuffy stereo console stole my radio, Just a big hole right now and it really bothers me. It looks like theres gonna have to be alot of fabrication to get the cb to fit, Ill try to post pics of the build up if anyone else wants to try this......I hate waiting for parts....I like instant gratification.

I didn't know they had dash kits for Cobra 18's. That should work slick with the front mounted speaker... I want to see the Photo's too. :)

Id really like to get a factory dash kit for it, but I had to settle for a stereo mount that Ill have to fab to get it to work. Hopefully itll work easy, if not Ill make it work. Still waiting on the parts..... Im going crazy:eek:

Wow.... what a pain, finally figured out how to post pics.

This is the cb in the dash kit..... yes, thats duct tape. :eek: I had to shave the dash side of the kit to make it fit.




And in the dash.....
:eek: I think it fits...

Thanks.. It really helped that I didnt need to fab anything, just a little love from a blade on the dash kit. Just started usin it today, that front speaker is sooo loud, I can hear it on the highway with my windows down. Im very pleased.
