Checking interest for auto-tranny CB mount

well i have had a lot of guys asking me about my CB mount bracket so i was thinking about cleaning up the design some and giving them out to people who wanted them. the basics of the mount; no drilling cutting or any modification is required it is just remove the cup holders and tranny access panel slip the mount under and screw the panel back down. here are some pics of the design.

looks good, when did they start taking the ash trays out of the truck? You just have a little compartment.

IMO I would think that bringing the mount out the front, so that it sits in hte notch between the seats would look better and would be closer to you, so that it is more accesable. Just a thought, but it looks great and is a great idea

that could work but you would have to atach it to the seat tracks some how so it would move with the seats. other wise you could never move your seats
