Mount a metal strap between the clips that hold the sun visors, and mount the CB bracket to that metal strap. Another way is to put a small piece of plywood between the roof and the headliner. Attach the CB mounting bracket through the headliner with screws into the plywood.

Mine is a little large for roof mounting, plus the face comes off so I did mine like this...

Thats what I thought about doing. only using metal. I dont think I could use a CB like yours cuz that looks like alot of buttons. I need something simple that works.

Well keep in mind that the plywood would be thicker than metal. You need a little width so the screw goes into the wood and not into the metal roof.

I guess you could drop the screws down, but it would be a bitch to tighten up.

Too many buttons!?!?!? Men like buttons and knobs and MORE POWER! Truth is I only use one button and two knobs 99% of the time. ;)

If I do the metal ill use rivets to keep in place. Dont want anything big. Something small and simple. Just dont know which one to get.

Here's mine:
Cobra 75 WX ST





Super easy to find a place to mount it, since the parts are compact...
