Step 10: Remove the 4 screws holding the Roll/Pitch Stick in place

Again i zoomed in to show which screw to remove


Step 11: Now you can remove the silver part of the face of your radio. it pulls out from the bottom and then pull down as the top is held in by tabs.


Step 12: Now break out your cutoff tool and cut the brass nut from the neck strap loop down to a nice short size. (yes that is a file in the background used to take the burs off)


Step 12-2: Thread the new nut on to the neck strap loop. dbl that distance and cut off the remainder of the threaded stud. (leave the nut on there as you cut, cause when your done all you have to do is unscrew the nut from the stud and it will fix the bur on the end of the threads you made with your cut off tool)


Step 13: Drill a hole with the 13/64" Bit right below the switch slot on the silver face plate.


Step 14: Put the neck strap loop in the whole, make sure you put the lock washer (star washer) on first then thread your short brass nut on good and tight.


Should look nice. (I put my neck strap loop so the whole is right to left, just so its out of the way of the switch)
