This customer found a unique way to mount a 2 ft Firestik on their Honda Civic. The customer had originally purchased an MK748R trunk lip mount, but didn’t like the look of it. Rather than sticking with the mount, they drilled a hole in the trunk and mounted the CB antenna with a Firestik K4 stud directly to the lid! The result looks pretty good.
From looking at the pictures and talking to the installer it looks like they found a place to drill a 3/4″ hole where they could access the underside of the trunk lid. To get at it with a wrench, they ended up cutting the metal back some. A Firestik coax with a Fire Ring connector was used to connect the antenna to the radio.
“The hardest part was finding a good spot to drill the hole in the trunk. I had to cut some metal with dikes and peel it back. I used two wrenches to tighten the mount down. It looks like any GPS antenna, just taller.” – Installer
You can see where the installer pealed back a little metal to get at the bottom of the stud.
The end result was clean looking on the outside.
