Hi all,

I was hoping to get some ideas around deleting my antenna. I was getting rust around the antenna and I've never used the radio, so it's time to go! 

My current thoughts are, clean up the rust, then either get a fabricator to weld in a metal plate for a factory finish, or to turn up a 50mm or so plate and either use an o-ring or seam sealer and bolt it down (similar to the common rear wiper delete kits).

Does anyone else have any ideas? 

I've attached a photo of the rust situation.

There should be rubber plug thingies you can shove in there (after you've treated the rust). Not as good looking but a quick fix.

I did a bit of google-fu and couldn't find anything that would fit :( 

Not being a round hole and being wider then the average wiper/antenna delete kit is making things hard.

The hole is about 30mm wide, those plugs are only 25mm wide unfortunately.

That's why I was thinking of turning something up around the 50mm mark, to cover the whole and the area with rust damage.

Might as well just cut a nice circle out of black duct tape in that case


All or nothing mate.

It was my first thought but I just didn't know how much it was actually going to cost to get done. 

But yes, I'm glad it's getting done properly. Should look good in a few years time when I finally get around to respraying the whole car lol.
