Hams: Anyone put a NMO mount on a hardtop ??
I've got a huge roll of copper tape so the ground plane won't be a problem. Just before I put the drill put to the top I wanted to see if anyone else had done it and if so maybe see some pictures and find out where on the top they put it, any problems, ETC.

They do make some for "thick" material, but I can't tell you if they are good for something as thick as the top. I have 2 mounted on the back edge of the hood. look at the reinforcing rib that runs across the back edge. there's a perfect spot for one on each side. I "think" it would be a lot easier to do. one is for 2/70cm and the other side is VHF commecial. If you want drop a PM and I'll send you a pic. There's a good radio shop in Texas city, but I can't recall the name. They should have any parts you might need.
