Shaved Antenna

Thought I would post up a DIY thread. I will give thanks to KC( OilfieldMafia) for giving me the idea.

Tools used:

7mm Socket

Extension

1/4" Ratchet

some cheap-o galvanized material ( I used a piece of stainless)

hacksaw

GM part needed:

part number: 15287179 (this is a factory antenna delete used on escalades and will work on all trucks 99-06 and 07 classics)



Remove the antenna and then pop off the cowl corner(3 clips)

Unbolt the base of the antenna (3 screws) and lay it down, running it parallel with fender


Bolt "L" bracket or plumbers tape to were the base of antanna bolted to.

Bolt base of antenna to the other end of "L" bracket of plumbers tape

Screw antenna to the antenna base.

Zip tie towards the end of the antenna to the inside of fender

( I zip tied mine but this is a pic of how Larry Jewell did his)

Snap antenna delete/escalade cowl corner

This is what mine looks like finished.




I will get the rest of the pics posted up when I get the camera back.

Gotta give thanks to KC( OilfieldMafia) on DuramaxDiesels for the idea. Just thought I would get things started off right in this section.
