    alright so i have been getting really annoyed because there isnt anywhere to put my phone or my zune in my truck in a visible spot. so i bought some crappy dock from wamart but the suction cup fell off.

    so i decided to make my own dock out of the old one.

    sorry i dont have pictures of the process but i have pictures of it done.

    so first thing first i sawed off the suction cup part of the dock only leaving the part that screws in.

    I then took off the little black triangleish shape things near the radio and grinded down the back so it was smooth.

    After i drilled a 3/4 inch hole in the plastic triangle part and i used JB Waterweld to mount the threaded part i cut off the suction cup to the back of the triangle thing.

    I let it set then put it right in :D

    here are the pictures below what do you guys think?

    1st pictures-this is where i mounted it i had the sond that square cut out a little bit

    2nd picture-here is the back of the triangle part, that grey stuff is the JB watermeld

    3rd picture-this is what it looks like when the dock is not screwed in

    4th picture-the dock...

    5th picture-and the dock with my zune
