kidphc Posted May 1, 2021 Report Share Posted May 1, 2021 Long Preface Sorry. I hope to say you time and money with my pain. So almost 2 years ago I got my FTM400XDR. Found as small as the body of the radio was I had no where to install it in my 2002 Suburban. The center console when dismantled because of the odd shape didn't have enough room as planned for the radio and additional things I wanted. So a custom front console came into mind. So in, came a year of procrastination. Well a year later and I got the bright idea for road trips it would be nice to listen to channel 19 on a CB radio. Ham buddy said, might as well do a 10/12m rig if really all you are going to do is listen on 11m/cb. After looking at Harris consoles and the like. It became quite apparent just the console was going to cost me nearly $800 with the mounts. Even in the used market, they were priced for just the console in excess of $200 for a banged up one. So that idea got tossed quickly. So I choose to start the nightmare project of a custom front center console. I say nightmare because, first it is not a square although it looks like it. More of lopsided "U" and all my wood tools, my dad had taken secretly or destroyed and left behind. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
