PostSubject: In-Dash CB mounting bracket?   Fri Nov 09, 2012 4:49 pm

I've been wanting to do this cleanly (key word, CLEANLY) for quite some time now, but haven't been able to find a mounting bracket that can hold both the CB radio and the stereo receiver.

I just happened to find a picture of exactly what I need, but the picture was posted in the blue room a few years ago (odds of them knowing where the pic came from are not good):





Does anybody have ANY idea where I can find a mounting bracket like this that can hold two units?

Its only a guess, but I've seen similar at Radio Shack.

Here's a start from what research I've been able to find:

Which Radio Shack were you at? I was recently in one in Concord and they didn't have any type of in-dash mounting brackets :/

Probably still require some dremel and xacto work.

Good to know they carry those!

I just found another thread in the blue room, and it looks like you can simply mount two single DIN units in a universal double-DIN mount:

After seeing a clean install like this, I'm convinced this is the way I'll go as well:

Check Best Buy. Bought a Sony radio for Saturn and used the double din kit to install the radio and the other space was used for a cub by hole.

Will do, thanks! I've currently got the cubby hole as well, which works great for holding my empty wallet, but I think that space should be utilized better Surprised
