A buddy of mine gave me a Honda s2000 antenna...but the thing has a wider base then mine...so it flared out at the end, not flush. So I guess that I would have to buy a new base, rats. So, I got to thinking and decided to chop the long piece off my OEM antenna. Afterwards I used a sharpie to blacken out the tip, cut mark, and then used a drop of crazy glue to seal it. I thought it looked pretty good. My reception was not effected at all...and I did drive to my parents 100 miles away and the stations were the same as before (pre-chop)...same range. Let me know what you think of the look?
