Album: Toyota RAV4 mobile installation

These pictures show how I used the existing rubber nipple in the bulkhead behind the engine to feed the battery cables into the car. My Yaesu FT90R sits under the passenger seat. I removed the cover under the passenger door to feed the cables to the radio.

Toyota RAV4 mobile installation

Updated Jul 1, 2012
Diamond NR-790 144/430 MHz mobile antenna fitted to rear door of the RAV4. I cut the lip off a Diamond DPK-TR antenna mount so that the door will open and close.  
Fused battery wires connected to the vehicle battery under the bonnet (hood).  
I made a hole just big enough for the battery wires in the existing rubber nipple located on the bulkhead partition under the bonnet (hood).  
Fused lead from battery to existing rubber grommet located on bulkhead.  
Detachable front panel of FT90R mounted under dash.
