Thats a real bad place to mount that antenna man, your standing wave is going to be all over the place. You need to get it above the car more. Being that close to the body is going to heat your radio up and possibly damage it.

yep nice. You can't do that with clearcoat paint on todays cars, once it flakes, it is toast no buffing will fix it.

love the old single stage paints.
