Here’s how I mounted mine. I sandwiched the factory mount between two opposing faced 1.5” angle aluminum pieces 3” long. Stuck it to the roof with VHB and bedded it in Sika 221.

I have the Weboost with a directional single YAGI antenna, bolted to the arm. I fished coax into the overhead cupboard where the DVD player is or was, which is quite close, but not an easy job, for sure. Then added a 12v automotive plug to power the 4G booster. Recently upgraded to the 8800L hotspot and find most of the time, I get better speeds by itself or with a simple Netgear X2 (MIMO) antenna in a window, works well. Remember to test speeds and not depend exclusively on strength of signal. But, when on fringes of coverage, the booster makes a big difference. Also, I used the simple "hershey bar" antenna and place the hotspot directly to it to eliminate oscillation and to get maximum boost. Note the pic of the booster, was before the 8800L and other work.
