Looking good! Did you have to remove the dash to get that cable through? I put my 29Mhz radio there when I need it - also with velcro in the little tray and underneath the radio's mounting bracket - but I still have to route the antenna and power cables properly. ATM they just hang over the dash. When I remove the radio I just put that little rubber mat back in the tray and you can hardly see that there should be something.

Installed new CB antenna and got it tuned. The firestix I had used for so long was starting to come apart. Now I have a new Wilson 4ft and it sounds so much better than it did with the firestix.

Firestik's suck. everyone breaks them, since they have no give. I like Wilson's because they are flexy...of course you CAN still snap it at the base if you really get it on something.

Picked up my christmas present. 4 lower fixed control arms and 4 upper adj. arms, all RE, for 300$. Need two new superflex joints, and a new bushing so that'll be another 200$ into them. Also cleaned them and picked up 3 cans of Silver Rustoleum Hammered paint to give them a little makeover. I hope painting over the powdercoat will be okay.

Started the wiring on my buddies TJ for his KC slimlights on windshield mounts, couldn't get all the bolts out of the windshield hinges so we're going to go at them with a breaker bar tomorrow, but we got all the wires ran and got the switch mounted up. Will take some pics tomorrow when it's all said and done

Thanks. I ran it under the center bezel and through a hole next to the radio and up through the defrost vents. The bezel has 1 screw on the bottom and 2 on the top under the defrost vent which is held down with clips. That rubber mat is great for covering holes!
