Yeah a little too familiar, actually. Problem was they didn't have the cable in stock that has the super thin section towards the end, only one I could get was a fatter one. So it's as if a full width coax is poking between my hood and fender. I loosened the hinges and tried to shift the hood over to the side, and loosened the fender and managed to pull it outwards a little, combination of the two probably gave me another .150" You can move the cable when the hood's closed, so it's not completely smashed, but still, just don't like it..

What if you placed your mount closer to the front of the fender/hood and ran the cable through the grill?

Let me know what time you want to test it tonight and I'll get on the air.

How often are you going to opening and closing your hood? Maybe a wrap or two of electrical tape where the cable might get rubbed and call it good - I'm looking for some of those self adhesive cable holders locally (like these or the type Hulk has) for my hatch mounted setup...I'm always opening and closing the hatch and the coax is probably going to get smooshed/sliced sooner or later.

Bought my first CB today. Ended up getting the Uniden Pro 520XL from Radio Service Center. Hope to put it to good use on the run Wednesday.
