    Default 2012 Toyota Camry Install w/ Pics

    XTL5000 VHF Mid-Power with O3 Head installed in a Camry. Laird 150-162 NMO Antenna. Install went smoothly. No issues. If you have questions I'll help as much as I can.







    Thanks to spectragod for a good deal on the radio and all the help along the way!

    Nice clean install. Curious how you decided on the mounting location for the antenna though (its driving my OCD through the roof).

    EDIT: On second thought, the more I look at it, the more it makes sense. Carry on...

    Thanks! The antenna was originally going to go center. However I plan on adding an 800mhz for Starcom21 and will put that antenna opposite the VHF. Plus due to the construction of the trunk lid this was just the best way. I know all about OCD!

    Very nicely done. I never thought to use the back of the seat as a mounting panel.

    Thanks folks! I have since moved and permanently mounted the remote mount cable and cleaned things up a little bit. As soon as I get the chance I'll update pics. Very please with performance and the install overall!
