ICOM m601 flush mount kit

I have just purchased the flush mount kit, despite cost (well if you are going to buy the radio why stop there ). This does not include any rubber seal/ gasket to place inbetween consol and radio - surely for waterproofing this would be included - especially at 25 for two pieces of ss and a couple of bolts. By the way, anyone want to buy a M601 mounting bracket - unused!

I think he`s probably away at the Oirish Show at the mo - but I`ve no doubt he`ll be back.

On my Humber I used Silkaflex to glue my M601 in as the fiberglass was too thick on he console for the flush mount kit.


It was totally waterproof and removable (just with a bit of effort)

Yeh Ginger thats exactly what we do - with or without the flush fitting kit.

In the very unlikely event that you may need to remove it you can carefully slip a very sharp craft blade down the rear face and cut through the sealant.

But a nice neoprene gasket would be nice when you buy the flush mount kit or like the Navman units build in rubber gasket on the rear face of the radio!

Cant cost the earth?
Mr Brookes?

My flush mount M421 now sports a chunk of mouse mat as a seal. It works nicely with the cut-down surface bracket, which is now acting as a flush mount fixing.

Now, what else can I go and bodge?
