    As mentioned in another thread this afternoon I fitted the CB radio in the MH

    Also as mentioned I MUST mount the speaker up behind my right ear or as far away from Woman as possible !

    Soooo
    Fitted the unit under the dash.. wired the voltage side up and then connected a nice long bit of speaker wire to a plug and started running it up under the dash, aiming for the step, where I would remove the plastic and run it to the back of the cab

    by this time I am loosing the light...

    Soo.. wire up under the dash and across
    Jumped out and started getting the wire in place to run under the step plastic

    Out of the corner of my eye I just spotted a spider that must have been at the very least 4" across with a body at least 2" in size

    I jumped up, banged my head, dropped the screwdriver ( of course in a hard to get to place ) and shot around the other side to get a torch.

    Gingerly started poking around and then I saw it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It was the other end of the bloody wire I was working with all nicely balled up and moving every time I adjusted the end I was working on :rofl::rofl:

    Ever felt a total berk !!!! :Eeek: :rofl: :rofl:

    Buggar! I wish I'd thought of that mounting location, my speaker is in the centre of the dash! What kind of spider was it? Sounds cool :D

    Sounds like the African Goolie Spider. Attributes:- Stays concealed until disturbed, making people jump up, bang their heads, and left feeling like a right goolie.........(y)

    Nothing like the 'scary dog in a spider suit'' on 'you tube' I nearly wet myself at that one laughing at the wusses but first impressions count don't they and a quick look then panic is the normal reaction to save time and life.
