Hi All

Am trying to find something like velcro to stick the uhf to the carpet on the side of the front passenger footwell in the Patrol. The velcro I bought will simply not adhere to the carpet (although it sticks fine on the dashmat carpet). Anybody know of anything that will do the trick?

Alternatively has anybody got any other suggestions of how to temporarily mount an UHF inside the car (GU4) without drilling holes?

Cheers

Hi Darren,

Cable ties do wonders!

Had a similar problem as you do, tried the Velcro and so forth but in the end opted to drill 3, 3.5mm holes and use screws to secure it.

The way I look at it is the holes are that small and in such a location that with a bit of Epoxy risen to fill, followed with a light sand, unless you look real close they would hardly be noticeable (If I choose to remove the UHF when selling that is).

I used cable ties to secure my TX 3400's main unit under the dash, placed a piece of rubber pading between it and the mounting point to soak up and vibration and rattles.

I dont have a Nissan but maybe this is still an option for you.

Like you I didnt want to drill holes.

Hello darren, you may want to have alook at mounting your radio in the storage bin in the centre consol, it's out the way and safe.

I have tried velcro but found the heat inside the vehicle affects the glue on the back.

A good quality 3M double sided tape will adhere well to plastic and painted surfaces. Will hold a remote head with ease. Cheers
