Mounting small CB on top of larger VHF transceiver

Need to stack one radio on top of the other without buying extra, expensive brackets?

Here’s how I put my used RadioShack brand CB on top of my Kenwood TM-281A VHF!

I used two 1-13/16 in. x 5 in. Tie Plates ($0.52 each at Home Depot) that I bent as seen in the last picture. I also enlarged the hole where the CB mounting screws go (used the drill on my Leatherman SuperTool) and filed notches in the tie plates where the screws for the Kenwood goes through.
I painted the things with PlastiKote Bed Liner spray.

The screws shown inserted in the side of the CB radio are not the right dimension and has since been replaced with better fitting screws. I used rubber O-rings in between, to reduse vibration.
