DIY shortened antenna
Pretty easy to do.
Stuck with a 14" height (stock is around 32" tall).
Very easy asthetic mod for those who live in the city (no reception lost for me).
Basically the hardest part is removing the ball, its not glued in just pressed on.
I used a pair of vice grips on the rod that was going to be cut, a crow bar to hold the ball (the cradle), and a hammer to hit the vise grips until the ball pops off.
Then I used a dremel to cut off the excess length and tapered the tip so I could put on the ball and hammer it on.
Came out pretty well, and did the same to my mustang's antenna too (they sell the same 14" length for $20-30!).
Don't know if anyone actually woud care to do the same but I think the trep with an antenna at roof height looks pretty good.
I'l try to get a pic up but my phone camera sucks right now (case lens is all scratched up).
