Alright, so I purchased a new cobra CB radio off Amazon last night and now im realizing that I dont know how to run the different cables.
1. Is there somewhere that I can run the power cable through the firewall w/o having to drill?
2. Where is the best place to ground it, the neg term on the battery, or somewhere inside the engine bay, through the carpet plastic flooring to the bare metal??
3. I also bought a cobra magnetic antenna that I'm gonna put on my roof, but I dont want to leave the rear window open in order to run the cable, nor do i want to slam it in the door frame everytime I get in/out. I've heard of running wires through the rear brake light casing into the cab, but also heard that once you touch that setup, you'll forever have leaking problems.
Here is the radio I bought, I didnt want a large unit sitting out that was easily visible to thieves so I went with an "all-in-handset" unit. The reviews were 10 to 1 good to bad and for a first time user, should be more than decent.
Also any pics would be greatly appreciated, especially in regards to running the cables neatly and out of the way.
