Default Finished

So I have the radio install finished. The two antennas, and the radios are under the passenger. I made a flat aluminum plate and mounted both radios to it. In turn the plate is secured to the floor using the jack bolt. The jack is under the rear seat storage. The antenna mounts are Breedlove stake pocket mounts. I made a flat steel plate and welded a 3/8 24 bolt to one side and attached it to the mount. There I have a 2m magnet mount for the vhf/uhf radio. The other is a little tarheel hf antenna. It is remotely raised up or down for differently frequencies. The hf mount is grounded to the chassis with a 1 1/2 inch flat copper strap. Both sets are working perfectly with many hf contacts on all bands in the states and Europe. Thanks for watching along with my project.
