Exterior TV Cable Outlet

I've searched the forums and can't find good photos. I've got a '71, long before cable television. I got an exterior outlet to install, but I don't know a good place. Some other folks have run their cable up through the refer intake from below, but I want a more permanent set up. I would like some photos to help me pin point the location. Thanks!

You can put it anywhere you want as long as you are willing to string cable to and from.

I use a Marinco mine is an older style, but similar. I prefer to use the marine style fittings. Mine is mounted near the fridge area on the road side of my 1975. Sorry I don't have pictures for some reason.

I don't have a good photo of it (perhaps tomorrow) but I re-used the older "phone" connection that was up front (basically above the credenza) in ours. I drilled a large hole in the original plastic and put in a coax connection there, and fished the wire through the wall on it's way to the rear where our TV is connected.
