Thanks Derek.Derek said:Hey Sig,
When you open the rear door, approx. 4 1/2" from the trailing edge of the door frame. Be careful when you drill into the roof that you do not go too far with the drill bit and puncture the headliner. I stuffed an old towel between the roof and headliner to give some clearance so that would not be a problem.
Also, after drilling the hole; I put a dab of touch up paint to prevent rust. When installing the antenna, I also put some clear silicone sealant between the antenna and roof to make a weather tight seal. Don't worry if some of it oozes out of the side when tightening down, that is a good thing. Just wipe off the excess. Just make sure that there is an even bead going all around. It would be a good idea to put some silicone sealant underneath too for a true weathertight seal. Good luck, and post some picts. of the completed install. :thumbs_up:
Hi Derek,Derek said:Hi Nuvs,
For me, the existing antenna is still in place; the cable is just unhooked from the receiver. I'm not too sure what you mean about how many holes are under the support. If you are talking about how many holes are needed for the roof mount antenna, then it is just one. The antenna has a shaft that goes through the hole in the roof and is bolted from underneath. Just remember to put some silicone sealant from on top and below to prevent water leakage. :thumbs_up:
