Painted XM Antenna?

Has anyone painted or thought about painting their XM antenna ( comes black ) body color? If you did, what did it cost? I am thinking of doing that on my VR SS when it comes in. What do you think?

I want to do it on my black car. You have to drop the headliner though. I'll probably save a while longer and have a body shop remove it, paint it then reinstall it. It would save me the risk of breaking something.

I think it might degrade the signal reception??

How about just masking it off and painting it in place?

Painting it will not degrade the reception. Plenty of shark fins painted on a good number of cars. Now a cover over top "could" possibly cause some interference, but painting it is fine.

My reception is fine. A layer or two of paint is not going to inhibit the reception at sat-comm frequency.

I was thinking of removing it and filling in the hole, and mounting it behind the 3rd brake light inside, but unsure if it would mess with the frequency

To make up for the "body ditch roof molding" in the RS package that means nothing on a black car, I'm proud to say my shark is already the body color. Hee.

I never heard that. I think your dealer is mistaking it w/ the roof molding.

My Question is if someone gets a Black Camaro, can you get paint and clearcoat the shark fin GM Gloss Black so it is truly the same color as the car. i hate dull things on shiny cars.... it would bother me.
