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.

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?
