XM-Commander

I've gotten a couple of questions about my XM-Commander, so I snapped a few quick and dirty pics of my mount.

First off, heres the unit itself:



The signal is not so hot in my garage.. no surprise since my cellphone doesn't work well in my garage either. Damn lead paint from the space-race era!

Heres how I mounted it with an old Ford CD Changer bracket and some 3M double-stick tape:



You can see my crappy "Ford Racing" hat that I wear for work on the passenger seat.

Heres the antenna, coming out through the 3rd brake-light. Some weekend I might pull it off and paint the antenna red w/ some Duplicolor, bot for now its ok.

Yeah on the new F150 the 3rd brake light is the PERFECT place to mount it.
