Default 2012 Chevy Equinox Updated

I felt like it was time for a little rearranging. It's nothing spectacular. No Jotto console or the like, the center console doesn't allow for that. But a Lido seat rail mount and extender plate handle the load fine.

FT-857D Control Head
HomePatrol-II
FT-8900R Control Head

The bodies for the ham rigs are below the passenger seat, hard-wired to the battery via a Blue Sea ST Blade Fuse Block. Not pictured is a Motorola M1225 4-channel UHF R-Split for FD/EMS comms that lives between the passenger seat and center console. I'll post more photos with the updated antenna set-up and all this weekend.

HomePatrol-II is attached to the old reliable PulseLarsen NMO-150/450/800.
FT-857D is attached full-time via a hatchback lip mount to a Comet SS-460SB NMO Dual Bander, swapped to an ATAS-120A for HF.
FT-8900R is attached to a Motorola VHF 1/4 wave since it's primarily used for monitoring air band and railroad.
Motorola M1225 is attached to a Motorola UHF 1/4 wave.
