No pictures yet… I just started installing my ICOM IC7100 into the adventure machine last night… I have it working on UHF/VHF. Next is to install my tuner and see if I can get the HF side of things to work before I finish the rest of the install.

Probably Thursday. I also have to find a mounting solution for the head unit… I have two ideas that I’m playing with at the moment… just need to see which one works the best

That's what I was most interested in. It's a bit of an odd base for a mobile if I recall correctly?

Did something for the weight today. Well, an overlander rig is like a human being, it gets heavier and heavier as it ages - haha. Cleared out all tools and improvisation material (such as screws, pins, hose clamps, plugs, washers, wire, adhesive tape, adhesives and sealants, gaskets, etc. etc. etc.) and sorted, what do I really need and what not. Then everything re-sorted and packed again. Saved some space and weight. So was successful.
