CB/OHC/Bezal

Finally got some pics of my cb i got from my uncle, the OHC i got from Drew(05RangerEdge)(thanks again man!) that i painted yellow, and my bezal i pulled off and painted yellow to match the ohc. ohc was kinda difficult to install cus the bracket got bent or something becuase it wasnt going on the ohc anymore so we impervised and put a small piece of wood in the headliner and driled threw the ohc holes in the garage door compartment and held the back up like that and the front had a cut up lisense plate bent around the front lip of the headliner and screwed to the ohc. cb is just bolted threw the panel below the steerign wheel and love it there. got my antenna wire going down the door-seal and then all tucked into the kick panel and out the rear to reach the cb. i didnt push my radio in the bezal all the way so if i have to remove it i dont scratch it :D

Reminds me of when I hooked up my first CB in my Bronco 8 years or so ago. Sloppy wiring job, and magnetic mounted antenna. Then after a few days I realized I could do better. LOL

Seriously though, that wiring would drive me insane. You need to take care of it. Wire it straight to your battery. Send those wires through the firewall and hide them up underneath the dash somehow. Then buy a mount and a firestick.

I hate to be the kill joy here, but I personally would find a better place to put the CB.

If your in an accident, and you happen to slide forward in your seat that CB is REALLY going to hurt your knee...

Nice job on the bezel though =)
