Default CB radio roof mounting

Guys,

i know theres some threads on this already and Ive had a read through,

I want to mount my CB (the actual radio, not the Aerial) on the inside of the Roof in the cab. Whats the best way to achieve this on a 90 (with headlining)?

Cheers

tiz better to fit it high up on the rear - saves ripping it off on the frst branch you come across .

Think he means the radio unit on roof of cab.
Branches shouldn't be an issue...

Edit too slow

One of those bungee type nets might work.

Why not mount it on the lower dash by the handbrake then you can see/access it and you can then mount the speaker thingy ;-) on the front of dash??

That's what I plan to do anyway.

I am wondering if one of those long sprung loaded masonry bolts into the underside of the roof ribbing might work....

edit:

wont work, cavity isnt deep enough to get the spring in...
