Yeh, I can just see it now, like the bloke in the Supercheap ad looking for a rattle with half the dash out on the ground, as for the CB why not go for the GME with remote , CB is under the seat and just the Mike on the dash clip.

Be careful what you put under the seat mate. Listen to what the woman says at about 1.40 into this video.

HI DOUG T--Not so easy as my son brought me a ICOM-400pro for my birthday last year & he would be very disappointed if I did not used it.also is the matter of fitting the brake controller.

G'day Mick.
If you're still looking for a way to access the space behind the dash on both sides, I can help as I'm in the process of installing a UHF and a Redarc brake controller.

The UHF radio I installed is a Uniden UH7760NB with the controls on the microphone. Installation was a snap ! The microphone is secured horizontally immediately ahead the compartment/s on the console. I chose this spot as my use of the UHF is infrequent.

The brake controller is a Redarc EBRH unit. I have positioned the control unit neatly into the dash by modifying the push-out switch blank (with hook) on the RHS of the steering wheel. The actual controller box I mounted on the cross member below the steering column and behind the removeable plastic panel. Getting this panel off was tricky as there was a screw hidden away on the LHS.

The Mazda has an ECU-controlled ie: variable voltage alternator. The sparky at the Mazda dealership informed me that a relay needs to be installed in the wiring to ensure optimum performance from the EBRH. I'll be letting the local auto electrician do this !

If you want to know more, please ask.

HI NETNUT, Thank for your positive respond But i got it fitted -- let my son loose with a screwdriver and in no time at all there was bits of dash laying ever were BUT IT TURNED OUT PERFECT- screwed the main unit to the main brace L/H side of S/wheel and the controller & light went in the spare socket far L/H side on the dash--the C B went in the cavity in the center console a good fit with the speaker facing forward with the microphone L H side below the wheel --ALL power wiring went straight to the battery-- the full job took 1-1/2 days about 6 hours work--THANKS FOR YOUR INTERSEST--MICK.
