Over the past week (been busy with work) I made some brackets so I could install my CB antenna and CB.

Here's a pic of the CB Antenna Mounting bracket


Here's a pic of the antenna from the front of the truck might not be able to see it.


Pic of the CB mounted


Pic of the microphone mount.


And the metal I used to make the mounts. This stuff is awesome for making any type of bracket. Used it last year to make brackets for my fog lights on my old Jeep. And the microphone for the CB slot thing fits perfect into the holes so you can make a bracket for it easily.

Didn't do much of anything with the truck today,stayed home from work and laid on a heating pad for most of the day. The wife took the truck to go shopping today. I pulled a muscle in my lower back again and wasn't able to make it to work last night. Feeling better now......Don't get old....

I didn't do it, but had leaking freeze plug changed, and my right front brake caliper clip came loose causing the brake to lock up, so had to get that fixed too. Total=$50.50

^^^ what happened to your truck weezel? that was a nice rig?


Today, I got a parking ticket... why? parking next to an improperly painted yellow curb (IE, I didn't see it was yellow) and too close to a designated crosswalk. (there were do daggum lines painted any****ingwhere) thank you Corvallis for keeping our roads safe, and jackasses like me with nice trucks in our position.
