Whilst I was vanning in Victoria last week, I saw two vehicles (Patrol and Pajero) which both had an antenna bracket mounted behind the spare wheel on the right hand back door.

Both appeared to be ready made brackets, and had the capability to mount more than one aerial. They were both mounted down on the spare wheel holder, and there did not appear to be a spacer to bring the wheel out away from the door. Both were shaped to get past the wheel rim and tyre, and then had a 'platform' which ran across the right hand (as you look at it from the rear) part of the door, and this had three holes for mounting.

Unfortunately neither of the owners was around to talk to! Can anyone tell me where I can get one of these brackets?

Regards
LES

Hi Les
I have a S2 Disco and looked into brackets to mount a HF antenna. Around $200. Went to Bunnings and made one for $20 without firing up the welder. Admittedly you have to remove it to take the spare off but it is only 2 1/2" bolts and the spare lifts off. I figured that I wouldn't be changing tyres every day so the small amount of inconvenience outweighed the cost. Can send piccies if you want.

Image Could Not Be FoundSorry for the delay, Here are the picsImage Could Not Be FoundImage Could Not Be Found

All that is required is to drill a couple of 12mm holes through the existing s/w mount and place a couple of threaded rod (booker rod) joiners in place. Bolt from the rear with 2 x M12 x 30mm bolts. Locktite a short piece of M12 booker rod into the other end of the joiners. Plonk the bracket over the top and secure with 2 x 12mm joiners again. Depending on the size of the wheel nut holes you could use M16 instead of M12 setup but I have found the 12mm to be very strong. To remove the wheel I simply undo the two M12 joiners with a spanner. Less than $20 including the spraycan of paint! The only hole I had to drill was for the antenna spring.
