Default Wanted - Motrac Thumb Screws

I am missing the thumbscrews for the Motrac radio. I finally found the correct bracket, and now all I need are the proper thumb screws to mount it in my Chrysler. Anyone have a pair they will part with?
thanks Paul

Hey you and everybody else Pal. Give it up, they ain't out there. I will give you five bucks for the mounting bracket though.

Try calling Motorola, or Galls, they may have something close that may not be exact but would be pretty close, and would keep the radio secure. Maybe check with the local Fraternal Order of Police Lodge and see if any of their members might have some stashed away in a junk pile. Here in AZ years ago my neighbor did all of his own PM's on his patrol car and mounting his own radios and he had quite a stock pile when he was killed in the line of duty. Its worth a call. Good luck

The actual Motorola factory fastening devices were just stainless steel Philips bolts, Paul. I'm sending you some....attached to a control head in much better condition, in appreciation of all the great advice you've given me. If you wish, I can "fake-wire" it so that the green power light comes on with the power switch and the red "Transmit" light illuminates when you push the button on the microphone. Or, I can just send it stock. Please note that, if I rewire it, no suction cups will be used. Let me know.

Doug, How can one "fake wire" a unit to do this? I would like to do this to mine in my 73 M-M combo!

Doug, a couple of things, first don't encourage Steinberg, it will only make it worse. Two, I echo Jeremy in how does one fake wire those things??????

Thanks Paul
