I didn't realise what a beautiful piece of work the drawings are! And the weirdest thing is that they printed out exactly to scale.

It seems like cheating to cut them out & draw round them whistle.gif

That's exactly why I did them on a 1:1 scale which meant they would print out to the actual size wink.gif I had to do the dimensioned ones first to get the correct sizing then I just removed the dimension markers to create the blank templates smile.gif I'm glad they're of some use biggrin.gif

Here are the brackets I made. They fitted well with no re-drilling needed.

I had to fold one end of the bracket to reinforce it a bit but it is all solid enough. It was just a case of cutting round your drawings and then permanent markering the outline onto the metal.

Thanks again. smile.gif

Just wondering; although this topic deals with the 145, are these brackets the same as those used in the 146?

They're the same type of brackets but on the 146 the dimensions are actually different. I'm afraid I don't have access to any 146 brackets so I can't tell you exactly how much different they are. You could always just try making some the same as the 145 ones and see if they are good enough to do the job even though they won't be exactly the same as the originals.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I'll make up some brackets to the dimensions shown on the templates and take it from there. The intention is for my 146 to have the CD changer mounted in the same position in the boot as the 145 as it looks neat and tidy and does the job.

My 146 is going to have the same Sony CDX changer unit as fitted at the factory on 145s so what would be really useful is to know the clear dimension between the inside faces of the projecting arms of the brackets that the CD changer is bolted to.

If I can find out what this measurement is, then I'm sure I could adapt the 145 templates to suit my 146. Would someone on here be willing and able to measure the clear space between the arms of the standard set up on their 145 and let me know what this dimension is please? It'd certainly help and be very much appreciated!

Many thanks.
