    Default Hidden antenna mod

    Well, it aint winter yet, but I'm taking a lazy Friday today (only a couple of calls for work <puke>), so I decided to finish the "no antenna" look.

    I've replaced the head unit already, which means no more CB, so I've deleted that already.

    This afternoon, I tucked the shorty AM/FM radio antenna under the chrome fender support plate cover. Got the idea from HDForums.

    Then I used vacuum caps to cover the exposed threads on my tour pack.

    I've not noticed any difference in reception so far, will do some road testing tomorrow.



    All clean!

    Rest assured, you see much less this way (none), and no loss of functionality.
