Nothing recently.
Supposed to be somewhat decent tomorrow.
Hope to get CB wired for power, and get antenna
coax routed. SWR meter is here, so I can get things tuned.
Maybe work on hooking up the auto headlight function of auto
dim mirror.

A transmission jack would help you out, otherwise, it's pretty straitforward... Use the search function on here or go on youtube, it's been covered plenty if you need some pointers.

Had to avoid a drunk driver and lost control straight into a ditch. Both airbags went off. Frame is bent. Front is screwed. It's totaled. Roads were extremely wet today from a ton of storms. So, I hydroplaned while I was avoiding the guy. Plus, my brakes locked. Everything went wrong all at once.
