Shaved my antenna opening

Post by MaineVette » Nov 30th, 2014 10:45 pm

Well, after debating it for a while I decided to remove the exterior-mounted antenna and fiberglassed over the original opening. I think this will look better in the end. I still haven't decided on which internal/hidden antenna to use but I know they're out there.

I actually made a video of me going through the process, now I just need to pull it all together, edit it for time, and pull out all my flubs and bloopers :D .

Here's a photo of the finished product. Not a ton to look at but I'm happy with how it came out - a full-depth structural patch that's nice and smooth.

Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:
