How To: Tibbett/Photo Antenna Mod w/Pictures

This is by far the best visual mod for FREE!

The stock antenna is in a weird location and there's no replacement antennas available that look halfway decent, but with this mod you can keep your stock antenna and get great reception still but it just won't be seen at all.

I take no credit for t

Wow, this mod is hot, and the how-to looks great. Thanks for posting this in the euro-antenna thread. I had been thinking about getting a shorter antenna, but this looks even better.

yeah this looks slicker than a shorty antenna....it cleans up the lines of the car since there isn't a boner of an antenna popping up anymore

And like I've said before...."less drag" without the antenna flopping in the wind...lol

Thank you for the How-to. Made it very easy.

Here is a problem that I ran into, that I have never heard of before.

When the antenna is flipped there are only two ways it can go on : facing the headlights, or facing the ground, am I right? Eitherway, with the antenna facing the headlights, I had it bolted in, and the fender would not fit over the hump on the antenna bracket. There was no way, other than some custom drilling, to get the antenna to line up correctly. So I flipped it facing downwards towards the ground, bent the atenna into a nice little spiral so it would fit in the fender opening, and bolterd her down and called it a day. I don't know if this is a Canadian thing, or maybe a queerbecer thing (the car was new from quebec) I don't know, but the bracket sat much higher than the pictures posted above.

Just thought this might be usefull information, in case someone else stumbles accross this.
