5/25/13: I got the CB installed today.

Here's where I mounted it:


To get the power and ground wires to the battery, I had to run a string through the grommet and tie the connectors to it.




And here is where the extra wiring for the anteanna is:


5/31/13 Wet Okole seat covers are on and looking awesome!

Go big or go home. That sounds like a hell of a setup on your new rig! I bet you will have the first heavily modded Ceeeement. Congrats on ordering the 13 TT :cheers:

Rich Kid!

I salute you!
Not that I have much room to talk (20y/o) but DAMN! Where's this money tree and how do I find it? I've got another 12 years or so until I'll have a slush fund large enough for that many mods at once on top of a brand spanking new TT! That is as long as Obama doesn't ruin my MD career...

All joking aside, that's awesome C.O. Cruiser. Good luck with your new rig, can't wait to see where this one goes! My icons are waiting at home for my rig when I head back after exams, can't freaking wait. :cheers:
