Does anyone have a remote faceplate mount for the IC207H they'd be willing to part with that their not using.  Let me know how much you would like for it.

I have two 207s, both with very simple and inexpensive homemade
mounts.  I start with a piece of wood that fits in a convenient hole
in the dashboard or console.  One mounts to the spare opening for a
CD player, the other to a dummy plug over an unused switch opening.
Besides that the primary components are three 1 inch "L" brackets and
some heat shrink tubing.

Set the remote head on the wood where you want it and slide one end
of each "L" bracket underneath it until the vertical part is flush with the
side of the head.  I don't remember if I put two on the top and one on
the bottom or vice versa - whatever fits the buttons best.  Mark where
the brackets go, remove the head and mark one screw hole for each
bracket.  Bend the tips of the brackets over slightly to grip the remove
head.  Cover the exposed brackets with black heatshrink tubing then
mount them with screws in the marked holes, leaving them slightly
loose.  You should be able to slide the head in from one end but not
pull it straight off the front because of the bend in the brackets.  It may
take a bit of adjustment of the screw tensions, but it makes a very secure
mount (much better than velcro), requires only a few minutes to make
and actually passed the aesthetics requirement for my wife's car.

I'm sure a similar mount could be made for other remote heads as well.
