Default Newest Mod!

Hey Guys,

Starting to hack away at my list of mods! The newest one arrived in the mail today after a LONG month of waiting.

Canada Post went on strike a couple days after I ordered my new 5" Carbon Fibre antenna so it was stuck in transit for what felt like forever.

Well I am very happy to announce, on my lunch break I installed the antenna and it was a perfect fit!

The Kit came with a black on black Carbon Fibre 5" Solid Antenna, several bases for different brands of cars as well as some black spacers. Overall the fit is perfect and you can't really notice the spacers at all.

The one thing I will do this weekend is Plasti-Dip that chrome piece below the antenna to black to give it that finished look

Cheers

Nice Mod! Where did you pick that up at? I have a shorty antenna also, but it's made out of rubber and pretty much bends in half if i'm doing more than 70mph...

Looks nice!

I got the sickspeed antenna and noticed that reception is pretty terrible with it, though I don't really care because I only listen to satellite and my iphone.

How's the reception on yours?

I got it off eBay at an auction called NISSAN 350Z Z BLACK CARBON FIBER SHORT 5" INCH ANTENNA.

Not sure if I am allowed to say the name of the seller so Pm me if you need more information. Paid $16usd plus shipping.

So far so good. The station I normally listen to on FM doesn't carry the best of signal even with the full length antenna. Listened for a bit on the commute home and didn't notice any difference. I'm heading on a trip north tomorrow evening and I know where I usually start losing channels so I'll let you know once I've checked in to the hotel.

Got to get one of those. If I had time and the resources I'd get one of those roof mount aero style antennas and would fill the fender and match the clean look on the other side. Just dreams!

I like the chrome ring at the bottom of the antenna. I would keep it just like that with out dipping it but either way it looks good!

I tried to get one from Slickspeed, but they lost my order. They claim the Canadian post office lost the order in transit due to some strike and told me I had to wait 30 days to either get my money back or order a new one. I paid with Paypal so I just filed a claim and got my money back that way. They claim they shipped it but it has been over a month and a half and no antenna.

I picked up one similar to this at PEP Boys for $13 and no $6 shipping. I wouldn't order one from them just cause the way they handled my order. Looks good, but either one looses reception so I chose to go with the one I could pick up locally.
