It seems to me you need to drill the door, but don't want to drill the door.
Bear with me, If you check inside the door at the welded captive nuts you' ll see there is a bit of spare meat on them. Enough to drill and tap one of them to m12, an m12 bolt can handle a 7.5 mm drilling.
I think GeorgeC told us the bolts were m10 fine thread but I'd swap to coarse thread because there is more choice of readily available hardware.
Chase out the existing threads with 10mm drill bit then follow with 10.5 and finish with 11mm. Use an m12 coarse tap and you're good to go.
Best practice, catch all swarf as nothing rots out a door like stray bits of steel.
Drill a bolt of suitable lengh and cut its head off, you then use a flange nut on the outside with a little thread still showing. This will make it easier to seal.
If in a years time you think you've made a mistake you can just pop in a helicoil.
All a lot neater than plumbers mastic.

I like that solution and could probably, just about, DIY it, maybe :silly:

Hya Keithy,

Looks brilliant. What sort of range were you getting from the rig?

4 or 5 miles....on the mway

Only used for laning so range isn't all that important.

Just had a email off GeorgeC. Remember him?

Anyways, he has suggested feeding the antenna cable from spare wheel at rear and then under the cars body.

So now we have multipul possible options.

Thoughts???

Gadget what kind of CB radio are you looking to run? I’ve read some great things about the ‘Uniden’ handheld CB for sale on amazon. You can power it via your 12v socket or batteries. It comes with an antenna which from what people have said is ok if you’re travelling in convoy, but for longer distance communication they used a mag mount temporary set up. I’d imagine the handheld would fulfill the needs of most weekend warriors in this forum
