Here is the antennas! Laird everything except for the I believe tri or quad band Laird for one of the scanners. The 2 that look very much alike are in fact alike, VHF Laird.

Awesome. My OCD'ness might arrange the 2 VHF Lairds a little differently but then again with the tri-bander making it 3 tall it'd be hard to get completely symmetrical anyway. Always good to see nice, clean, properly installed (nmo in the roof) antennas!

Now that I look closer, I think those two VHF are Larsen antennas...right? Specifically the NMOWBQB (or NMOWBQB140 if on amateur range)...? NOT trying to point out an error, I was just looking them up since I've been thinking about getting one with a spring and I do prefer black and the one I found that looks like it says it's a Larsen but maybe I'm wrong.

Knew that'd be asked! Actually, it was a little over 2k option for heated/cooled leather seats, from an aftermarket installer that is a contractor for the dealership. Basically my dealer offered it as an option, it took them some time + cost, but donezo. Controls for heating/cooling for your seat is located on the seats themselves, unlike factory. But heh, it's pretty damn comfortable!! 2k or so is worth it when you feel it every single day.

Curious - what is the Motorola Portable holder that you have behind the speakers?

This should be used as an example of "How To Do It Right" photos in the mobile radio installation handbook. The "How Not To" photos can be found on the Hamsexy website.

Looks great. Just out of curiosity.......... I see your location says NJ, said the install was done in TX, but the first pic with the snow, was that taken in front of Charlotte Motor Speedway? If not it looks identical. I go by CMS a couple times a week. I know Speedway Motorsports own a number of tracks, including Texas Motor Speedway, but can't remember if any of them resemble CMS. Also, great install!!

Did you need to hire full time security to keep an eye on it?
