Anybody out there who's purchased the shark fin antenna for the koup from Korean Auto Imports?? Mine just got here and I'm lookin for some pointers. I searched the DIY section but couldn't find anything specific to the KAI shark antenna. Unfortunately, i gotta out and get a couple of pieces of 3m doublesided tape(since there was none underneath - ??)
It seems like it's too small an opening on the underside to fit over the base of the antenna presently on the car. Any pointers on installation/how to remove antenna base?

Is it a functioning antenna or a dummy one? You tried fitting the shark fin over the antenna base and it didn't fit? I wouldn't recommend removing the base.

I've emailed about the antenna issue askin what I'm supposed to do(about the base). No response yet. I'm not too worried about this as far as functionality goes. I discontinued the sirius anyways recently.
I'm getting my Sequence GT Spoiler Installed by a pro on monday, i'm gonna throw the antenna issue in his lap. He said he'd take care of it. Hopefully I'll have some pics up by the end of next week. Some more decals to come, then FINITO for this round of mods.

I just got my seqence spoiler painted all racing red, one tone, it looks a lot better than the picture. Still haven't installed it yet though, I'm going to install my sub, shark fin antenna and spoiler at the same time
