TY everyoneÖ.Its still in the rough. Iím slowly whittling it down. I just need to finish fitting it to the headliner and start the fiberglass coatings. On the mounting, the front will have two metal washers glued and glassed into the bottom with screws going up through the headliner. The rear will have a metal strap across the rear faceplate support with two screws running up from there through the headliner. Iím trying to get it up there without pulling the headliner, but I may have to add a bracket on the back side of the headliner for the rear mount. Thatís next on the figure it out as I go list.

Yeah I would definately find a way to just screw it to the center brace rather than pulling the headliner. Get some pics up when itz done.

I'd suggest sanding some foam down to get rounded sides then glass over that...

Its not that difficult, just time consuming, especially the sanding. Lots of hours sitting in the parking lot and about $20.00 dollars in parts and supplies.
