Also, I was kinda thinking in my head about the little hole after the antenna is gone...how funny someone else thought that too and actually found a plug for it!
It's really not that big of a deal and you won't even think about it


Just the fact that the ugly antenna is gone/hidden is all that matters

i just did it.. took me about a half hour.. the bottom bolt on the antenna was a bitch and i dropped my wrench in the fender.. took me a bit to get it out.. but besides that it was cake.. too freakin easy.. and i lost no am or fm signal.. i got the plug at ace hardware for 48cents and the finished product looks sweet.. nice and clean, just how i like it..

good to hear!

Yeah there's not too much room to work with, but it's manageable & sure beats taking the fender off....lol

I just did the antenna mod too, very easy, looks a lot better. :) the antenna never really bothered me & i'd heard of people doing it, but never really cared about it :shrug03: untill I saw the pics with & without. It's amazing to me how much cleaner the car looks w/o it. Anyway good write up, made it a lot easier, thanks bro. :) :)

no problem....just glad I could help!

I had a short rubber antenna before, but it kind of looked ghetto........this solution is 1000000 times better & FREE :)


Plus it'll make you sooooo much faster since you won't have the drag of the antenna...lol :rolleyes:

Maybe your antenna is touching the frame and the whole vehicle is just one big rolling antenna now....lol :shrug03:

Added a 7/8" nylon cap/plug today. Picked it up from ACE hardward for $0.65

It's in the hardware (nuts, screws, bolts) aisle in the little plastic drawers where you can buy everything individually

Looks a lot better & finishes the clean look!!! It's in there super tight and isn't going anywhere and matches the cowl perfectly too!

That part number that was listed (#2703) was wrong because after I found the nylon plugs, that number wasn't listed at all on the boxes

But like I said it's in the drawer labeled "Nylon Hole Plugs"--which was at the end of all the boxes/drawers at my local ACE hardware
