Greetings all!
I am trying to install my Icom 207h in my Ford Windstar (1999) and seem to be having some issues on where I can put my radio! There doesn't seem to be a lot of flat space where I could reach the radio.  I'm not much of an engineer so this is kicking my butt!  In my old Voyager I just mounted the rig to seat panel on the drivers side and it worked great. I don't have that option here since the parking brake is too close to the seat to mount the rig.
Thoughts? How did some of you guys do it?

Thanks!

Go to my web site and look under Installations. Although there isn't a Windstar, there are enough other vehicle installations to get a feel of what's possible.

I have to say, however, there is a TON of room in a Windstar. Compare it to a BMW Mini. I recent saw one with three remote heads mounted in it. Where there is a will, there is a way.

I have have done installs in two Windstars and in both cases have used the areas under the front seats. I have put the dual-band rig under the passenger seat and the Alinco DX-70TH under the driver's seat. Both of my radios are bigger than your Icom.
