Fourliter Dan's CB/ LED gauge install

Today Dan came over and we installed his CB Radio, and put LED lights in his cluster.

Dan Figuring out the final mounting of the radio itself.

We put this damn thing in and out about 5 times cause stuff kept getting caught, and we lost a socket down in the void of the Ranger Dash. (which we found after while out on the gravel roads.)

While Dan was cleaning up behind his gauges, and putting the interior back together, I re-positioned the CB antenna to the side of the box so it could open all the way.

What I did not get a picture of was the external speaker position, and the final mounting position, due to some metal needing some extra persuasion that we did not have the tools for in the back end of my schools parking lot. I also do not have pictures of the Gauges. Dan should upload those later tonight.

After seeing it in person, he did a damn good job on it. I can hardly tell that he chopped it down from a 60% seat., and he didnt even sew it up. I think it wouldnt be too hard to make look completely natural by sewing it up, as long as you or your woman are good with a needle and thread.
