      Well, where to start.
      Purchase new cb and fab up mount under dash.
      Purchase whip antenna and fab slick mount for it.
      Some tweeks to the current engine set up.
      Clean up engine bay.
      Mount line lock.

      That's it currently.
       

       

      How's this thing go back together???

      If you find a way with our lack of metal bodies.. let me know.. I ended up having to have the antenna sitting in my back seat the whole time..

      Check out this link to a home made antenna mount. I plan on doing this for my car. I have seen similar commercially made mounts for $100+, but I like making things when I can.
