Help on finding an antenna connector

Here's the deal. I am trying to find a connector UHF/ PL-259. I want to run the coax I have thru the center console to my HT ham radio. At that point is a PL-259 connection. I want to have a connector mounted to the plastic in the center console. This connector should have jam nuts to mount it. Male on one side, female on the other.

I've tried looking it up online and thru the ham radio dealers. I just don't find it, or no pictures of the product shown so I can't be sure.

Any help from hams or CBers as to where I might buy this?

Re: Help on finding an antenna connector

Ya I looked there too. Didn't find the exact thing I wanted. But in looking again after your reply there is a part that could work. I will need to find a very thin nut to mount this part. I've gotten them in the past from Radio Shack as well.

Checking again, nothing that is male/female. Dern

Try a google search on "pl-259 bulkhead"

Here are a couple of the hits. Maybe you can come up with something that will work...
