Thanks,

...There is a seller on Ebay that sells a copy of the original Trico installation instructions...I tried to ZOOM in on it one time...looks like one of the spots you can mount it is on the sun visor another I believe is down behind the steering wheel... I'll bet this Auction will reach over $200 dollars...$300 wouldn't surprise me ...! You going to bid Charlie...? I wouldn't want to bid against ya...You saw it first...! Kevin

Kevin and everyone else. Naw, I ain't gonna bid on it. There other accessories that I would rather have. I was just wondering how the things could be mounted on a 41.
Thanks,
