No problem with the reception at all. I have done both my cars and haven't had any issue with either one. GM uses painted antennas on Cadillac and Buick. Thanks GTHAVIT for a great vid, much better than the written instruction. If anyone is interested, PM me for ordering info.

Well before I visited Becky at Rodgers Chevrolet, Veteran 1 had the drab factory black shark fin and right away, Becky said one of thier signature trade marks on on the C5's they sell, is to have the shark fin painted to match. And they painted it RED

Great Video, will come in handy. I plan on doing mine. I was just going have it painted along with some other parts, so good to know it doesn't seem to afftect anything.

Mine has a sun roof, and thinking about it, I bet if you dropped it down just a hair more in the front, with out removing the entire headliner, you could reach through the sunroof opening and it might be even easier. Just a thought!

Looks great dude!

The painted to matched fin, has been one of my secrets...
It takes 3 steps, for finish paint, to look like factory...
They are perfect fo any color!

Well done. Good video and instruction.

If I didn't have a Black car, this might be higher on my personal "to do" list however it does make me think that a custom striped or painted one might make it something that would make me me want to do it faster.

Again, thanks for sharing and it does indeed look better!

Great video. This works GREAT if you dont have a sunroof. I have tried it with the sunroof and you cant get the back of the headliner to drop down far enough to get your hands up in there. I am afraid if you have a sunroof, you may have to remove the entire headliner. I wound up stopping because Ididnt want to crease or bend the headliner by pulling down on it too much.

If anyone with a sunroof has performed this, please let us know if you removed the enitre headliner or not.

Surprised that no-one has designed color coded slip over cover for this little fin.

I'm thinking there is plenty of room even with sunroof... Mine did crease on the sides when pulling it down but they are not permanent... I only pulled it out to the B pillars... just reach up and pull the plugs out of their holders first then you can unplug and plug them right at the very rear of the headliner... a bit of creasing on the sides will not show at all when put back up.

Maybe someone w/ a sunroof can chime in here...

True, I creased mine a little. an it goes away after you put it back up... just don't "fold" it or leave it creased for very long.
