New Overhead Console
OK, so I've decided to build myself an overhead console for the CB and radio in the YJ. I've decided to fasten it over the footman loop on the windshield and use U-Bolts to fasten it around the cage. I am making it out of 12 GA. steel. The estimated weight is going to be about 20 pounds without the stereo or CB mounted in it. Do you guys think the footman loop on the windshield will hold that kind of weight (30 - 40 pounds) when it is being shaken all over during off-roading? There will probably be a slight bit of play in the installation to allow for the unforseeable. After all, it is a JEEP!
I have attached a pic of the drawing I made. Sorry, it is of extremely poor quality, most of the design is still in my head!
OK, so I'm an idiot!!! I forgot to check the file size before attaching. So here's the problem: When I make the pic small enough for the file size, the clarity goes to crap! So, just use your imaginations!!!! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
