Shaved Antenna

Why would you shave it? (simply cosmetic)

What do you use to get radio reception after its shaved off?

Re: Shaved Antenna

Most who shave it don't get radio reception anymore.

Though I have seen a rather elaborate setup with a old skool tv arial (the spiral type) mounted under the parcel shelf that worked relatively well.

Re: Shaved Antenna

I did it just for the cleaner look, and because I never listen to the radio.

Re: Shaved Antenna

yup
radio=noobs
cd's,ipods,mp3=1337

jk
i just don't like the radio to much so i put my antenna all the way done and never hooked up the signal wire for it.
so really i could be considered shaved even though i haven't actually done it.

yes, cosmestic usage
