Fantastic work. Clean, functional, form fitting and just plain not overdone.

The buttons were the Cool whip on the cake.

And a job offer to boot from an earlier responder. How cool is that.

Very nice work. Looks great.

Great minds think alike, but so do serial killers. Thanks.

Only problem is its made specifically for the radios I put in it. I'd have to come up with a generic system for it. What all would you guys be willing to spend on them?

I think that is great! I'm a Ham and have been looking for a place to put a single dual-band radio in my Jeep.

Great work! I am very jealous!

That is Sweet! How are the radios mounted inside the panels? I saw some ribbing on the side panels in one of the pics. Is it like a compression fit?

You can hit your head if your not careful getting into the jeep but once your seated there are no problems. I am thinking of how to make these to be generic to fit any radio. What would something like this be worth to you guys?
