I think if you take the stud out of the shorty. it will screw on to your mount,1/4-20 thread both ways, just female instead of male, stud has locktite on it so protect shorty with tape or similar, use release agent on stud if poss.
(you may also need to shorten the stud on your mount to prevent bottoming use removed stud as a guide) you can also swap mount to a later model (I've seen $22. quoted for that part)

Up to 05 the base of the antenna has a male screw on it. Reverse of 06+. I also need to buy a new antenna to make it work. :( .. There is no adapters.

you can make an adaptor yourself if you wanted to. i just rethreaded the fitting to match.

won't the stud come out of the shorty? ask SLVRLTNG then screw in where stud came out

Re: need shorty antenna adaptor..
 
i assumed it would come out. wk is 1\4-20 on both sides if so. my point about having other adapters is i have some 1\4-20 and a different thread on other side.
