View Full Version : pics of custom antenna

I was reading some forums about VW owners stealing the EP antenna, so i made mine look like a VW antenna. Plus that little stub didnt get that good of reception, this one works better and my stations are more clear. Its a GM truck antenna but i sawed it in half, and added a cap to the end. I also had a great old time attaching it to the EP because domestic antennas are reversed. I had to make a stud that was 8mm on one side and 1/4 on the other. . .

anyway heres pix

Here's what I would do:

Since you're not gonna be using your stock antenna, why worry about it getting stolen?

I would use your stock antenna, if someone steals it, put on the GM one.

There are other alternatives, such as glueing it.

Add a Japanese Kamikazi flag and you're all set. HAHA

the antenna is approx the same length of an IS300 antenna. And i do listen to a lot of CD's but if a good song is on FM I like to bump it. The higher the quality signal to the amps the more efficently they reproduce it. The stub just was'nt cutting it

Looks like a remote control car now

So how much are you going to sell me one for?
I have my 3rd antenna in my glove box and the
reception sux. So my girl changes the Cd's for me.

I think i am going to put the stock one on ebay as seeing im not using it anymore, and actrually i do have a lot of those antennas at my work, but ill have to custom make the fittings again and if you really want one ill make a few and sell them

You could easily sell your stock antenna on www.newcelica.org.
It is the same as the S2k which fits on the celica vice their lightning rod.

jo3y, when you open the hatch does the antena hit the window? it looks like a ford focus antena bro...............

02-02-2003, 10:44 PM
it clears the hatch - you should have seen it before i cut it down, it was twice as long and just looked silly. It kinda does look like a focus antenna although the focus antennas are near the front of the roof

A cute girl I work with has a newer Jetta. I swapped my antenna with hers one day and hated the way it looked.

Yours looks like someone misplaces their chopstick. :D You get points for effort and originality though.
