Howdy. Have not been around for while. Work, work, work and well, you know.......

FINALLY properly grounded my CB and UHF/VHF antennas to the hood and frame since the powder coating on my Ditch Light brackets were not providing a solid ground plane. Made a huge difference. Now the whole body and chassis is one linked ground plane.

I been trying to get to this for a couple of months and knocked it out today.

Note to CB and UHF/VHF installations and ditch lights. Highly recommend braided mesh grounding.

To protect the hood edge paint and for looks, I used Plasti Dip spray paint to cover the flexible metallic mesh. It REALLY HID the mesh visually when zip tied to the existing coax and power for the light..

Spilled 20oz of hot coffee between the center console and driver seat.
I never consider anything truly "mine," until AFTER I've spilled coffee on it. It's rare that I don't have a cup of coffee in my hand.
