    Regarding my last post. I ended up using a stainless steel bolt that was the right size and cut off the head to the length I needed with a dremel. Problem solved.

    that's pretty smart thinking. makes it nice that the size was the same for the antenna and the car.

    Most real hardware stores (no, not the big box), have threaded rods available in various lengths, threads and sizes or cut to length so you can take a nut, try it on the thread of the existing antenna, take it to the hardware store and ask the clerk to find you a threaded rod the right length for you to buy.

    I recently bought the same antenna which I enjoyed for about a month and than it turned a bronze color do to California sun. So I took it off and put the oem back on. Now I will just buy the JDM version.

    [QUOTE=kzoo;1673633]I bought the 3.5inch stubby antenna but none of the adapters work. It seems the adapters that fit into the antenna is the same as the hole in the car. The problem is that none of the adapters are identical on both ends. How did you get your antenna on?


    Yes, I purchased a similar antenna on ebay and found the same issue. Contacted the seller to see what they say. Anybody on this thread have any other suggestions?

    Antenna thread adapter for aftermarket stubby antennas

    Hey, if anyone bought some cheap aftermarket stubby antennas but they didn't include an adapter that fits, I have a bunch of these socket screws that are basically metric screws M6-1 that are 14mm long and will screw into the antenna and the mount hole. It's long enought to screw into the hole and then screw the antenna into it.

    I bought a bag of these, so if anybody needs any, let me know. I may put them up on ebay in lots of 3 for a buck or something. If anyone is interested, please let me know and I'll do that and put a link here.
