i will try and take a picture or two tommorow if you need ,hope this helps !
Pictures would be most welcome, thanks!

I'll hold off ordering till I see the pics so I can get everything at once.

I've used them often and I've even got them buried in the ground without a problem. You can discard the screw terminal connector and make a proper co-ax soldered joint and then simply close the gland nuts.
I'll keep this in mind thanks.
