To save me "re-inventing the wheel" where do people mount the transceiver body in GU Patrol?

I have a place for the remote head.

i unscrewed the glove box(4 screws) on the triton and then zip tied it under the dash. not sure if the patrol is the same but it works really well and is easy to hear.

If you have a cargo barrier, fitting it to the rear of the barrier works well. Good ventilation and up high should water become a problem.

I have a large old commercial UHF which I have mounted on the rear of the centre console. I took out the ashtray [ won't be needin that anymore, cough cough ] and mounted the UHF and a 12v outlet for the fridge.

Seats in, seats out, doesn't matter, it's not in the way and cannot be seen from outside the car. Mic cable is cable tied to the hand brake and power comes from under glovebox and thru the middle.

Hi Anglepole,

In my GU, I mounted the body of the CB under the centre console, you can remove the panels in the rear and mount it under the tray. I ran the cables up through the hand brake opening. You will need an external speaker though.

Hi,

I replaced the standard double DIN CD player with a single DIN MP3 player (can get 12 albums onto 1 CD so it beats a stacker). I then mounted my UHF radio in the spare slot.
