    Do you have any pictures/ instructions on the modification of your cubby hole to fit the TYT? Did you just cut it with a dremel tool or something? Also, was there anything in the way behind your hole that had to be relocated? Thanks in advance!

    Look for johndjmix. He was the guy doing the radio install kits for the center usb cubby. Try shooting him a PM and see what happens.

    So I had been contemplating where to mount my helix director dsp controller in my truck. I saw this thread and it sparked my interest! Here’s what I came up with.

    Used 1/4” abs and wrapped it in factory leather. Really happy with how it turned out! Excuse my terrible leather finishing skills. First time doing this! Thank you for the idea!

    Do you have a link to where you got the leather? Looks great!
