Wow @Ladybug congratulations! She's a beauty, that's for sure. Watch it you don't start getting speeding tickets to go along with it! Maybe you should nickname her Fast Millie.

Not likely to happen tho Di!....The more you step on that gas pedal, the faster that gas gauge goes down!!

Thanks Al!  She is indeed a sweet ride!!!  She's not seen dirt yet...just has barely 300 miles on her, so am following the book on the breaking-in of the engine..

Accessory's being added to Ms. Millie....

- Ham Radio (Icom) with Mars upgrade for use as GMRS as well as Ham. - Shown mounted to Molle Rack added for a clean install of the radio, and Element 100 fire extinguisher.

 

- Small brackets fab'd to mount the faceplate & to mount a magnetic base for the mic, as well as modifying the mic to accept a metal plate (washer) for the magnet to hold the mic in place when not in use.

 

- Radio secured with velcro strapping, (similar to the grab handles added above all 4 door openings) and isolated from rack, by approx. 1/8" thick layer of 1-sided adhesive foam.

Accessory's continued...

Antenna mounted to T-gate, so I routed the coax along side t-gate wiring, and "looped it inside the Rt-Rr quarter interior trim, so it would "slide" as apposed to bend/kink with t-gate open/close.
