I was planning on mounting an antenna or two on my trunk and was wondering how much space the interior parts take up. Due to the reinforcement parts of the lid, I only have 2 1 inch by 7 inch channels that giveme access to the outer metal part of the trunk lid. I’m attaching a photo for reference.

I’m worried about the minimal width required to install. Depth isn’t an issue.


I don’t have the exact measurement but the “claw” that goes under the metal is not an inch wide. I think it’s closer to 1/2”.

You’ll be fine.

Plenty of room. Just orient the mount so it runs horizontal with those cut outs. I don't see any issues here with using regular NMO mounts.

Thanks. I didn’t think there would be a problem but I didn’t want to order up everything and then find out it won’t fit.
