Need help wiring cb!

So I just bought a new cobra 19 ultra III and I need help wiring it so I can get power to the cb. I am a newbie at this and never wired anything before. I would prefer to put the positive end in the fuse box but I will accept any suggestions!

I have the same cb and wired mine off of the power outlet in the center console since the positive has an inline fuse already

I tapped into the existing wiring with the tried and true soldered "T" splice topped with shrink tubing. I just used a multimeter to get the positive and negative sides at the factory plug under the center console, I mounted the cb in the center storage area

Some cb you can buy a power outlet that will connect into the cb then into the charger. $20 give or take. That is what I did on my truck. Running a connex 3400hp 10 meter radio

I tied into the factory wiring on the console side of the plug so if I ever needed to remove the center console

Oh okay. Is there anyway I can get this done by tonight? And I don't have any soldering equipment. Maybe I can go into the fuse box? Which fuse should I use?

You can tap in using "T" taps as well if you want but I don't personally trust those connections. You can run it off of the fuse box but I don't see the need to double fuse such a small draw but that's just me

I used T taps and tapped into the back of the power outlet. It's been in for 2 years with no problems.

I added a power outlet plug to the cb power wire. Easy to take out. No real need to have a cb permanently mounted when you're never going to use it on the streets. I velcro mounted so I can slap it into place when going out on the trails and plug power into the power outlet.
