Re: Sharkfin Antenna Install with Pics

I have brilliant black and the brilliant black paint on the shark fin was a perfect paint job and a perfect match. I remember threads on here that someone with a mineral gray didn't get a match, and someone with stone white didn't get a match. That was only two I could remember that said theirs didn't match. If it didn't you could send it back and they would try again. Matte Dark gray almost black to match the plastic trim would probably work, but I think bright silver metallic would look very nice.

My brilliant black one is a perfect match too. Reception is great. No satellite here so can't comment in that but I hear its fine. Some have complained about a slight loss of AM, but that's radio for dinosaurs anyway.

I have one in Winter Chill and the match is excellent.

Reception is good for AM and FM, as good as original. Has been fitted for 7 months with no issues.

Re: Sharkfin Antenna Install with Pics

What am I doing wrong? I can't grey my OEM antenna out, like something is holding it in place. Just pull out hard? Or am I missing something.
