I've made a custom tablet mount stand that I'd like to mount on my center hump, but I'm curious as to how far into the hump I can drill to set my screw holes. I've already pre-cleared the screw hole pattern so I don't get a ton of carpet and padding twisted onto my bit, but not sure of the following:

  • A) How far can I drill without worrying about going into the transmission housing?
  • B) Should I use self tapping screws and just sink them 1/4" into the sheet metal?
  • C) If I use option B, will 1/4" mess up the trans housing?

I have a 14 hour road trip coming up in 4 days, which is just enough time to mount the tablet and get it ready to hookup to the ODB2 unit to bluetooth to my tablet to keep an eye on every facet of my truck.

Thanks for any assistance.

I'm back on this project now that I have some spare time, so I'm hoping someone can help me out. I just need to know if I put a few 3/4" screws into the floor hump - is that going to pierce the tranny housing or cause any problems? I've already cleared the wires around where I need to tap.

After 200 views I was hoping someone may have an answer for me.
