Remove Rear Antenna...completely?

how hard u think it would be to remove the antenna/then to prime, paint and clear a 1" hole? =D

before:

after my awesome paint skills (yea i said paint, wanna fight about it? lol):


im thinkin F*** the shorty antenna idea, and try one of those antennas inside the car, that run say the length of the dash, and since i have it out to paint (and add more leds ) i could install it and then put my dash back in afterwards.

thoughts?

well gcobalt05 did the vacuum cap on his antenna, and your idea would be a ***** since you're gonna have to blend the paint on that whole panel

Trust me.. trying to fill and paint the antenna hole is far from a DIY project..

the only way to propperly fill that hole would be to weld in a piece of metal. thats not an easy task.
