Antenna Mod

I was bored the other day and I didn't like how tall the antenna was. Tell me what you guys think.



Threw this one in cause I liked how the sun hit the car and showed the color.

Looks great, did you just cut down the original one and add that ball on top?

Yea I cut the original antenna and I saw in a DIY someone did. They had to pull the little ball on the top and it comes off. Then I had to make the top of the short antenna smaller so that it would go inside the ball. Here is the DIY that has pics and would probably give you better info than mine.

Reception went down a little bit, but only when I was around a lot of trees. Maybe a little static here or there. Overall not bad at all. I'm sure it would sound normal when I go in the city since I'd be near the radio stations.

It looks better than the full antenna, but why not just buy a shorty? it's only about 20 bucks, and nothing beats that look.
