I needed to install a CB for some group runs. I could not find a location I liked on the forum so I decided on mounting at the headliner. I used a piece of aluminum 3/16” and shaped it to fit the curve from the mirror up the headliner. Mounting with the mirror allows for the mirror break-away to release the CB if needed. The Cobra 19 is light (20 oz.) and inexpensive less than $40. By cutting a hole in the aluminum bracket the size of the raised mounting location for the mirror then using the mirror to trap the bracket (you must shim the mirror mount out the thickness of bracket material) holds bracket tight. I mounted the antenna like the Bandi mount with cable entering at the rubber tube connecting door to body then thru Jack area to and under scuff plates to A pillar then up along windshield to radio. I ran power and PA cables along windshield and down A pillar to fuse block.
