TRIPOD MOUNT HOW TO
might mark this as a how-to or something, I made a tripod mount for ext cab 2 door trucks... can't install it on the truck right now cause we are being swarmed by the good ole flying ants...

I got the bracket at a parts store, try home-depot or Lowes, used 10 washers (9 on the bolt) and 1 to secure the bracket to the back wall, dunno the size of the bolt, just take your camera in with you and try diff. sizes...

This whole assembly mounts to a screw hole thats already on your back wall, its the top screw in the center that holds the back metal panel on there...

I'll get photos tomorrow of it installed, it should hold most cameras and SLRs...
