I have this tendancy to drive fast enought to bend my antenna. This is the second one now that needs replacing.

I was wondering if there were good options out there for either a central mount or over the door mount - but one that won't kink like the stock ones do? Is there something that will patch over the old antenna hole?

there are OEM antenna covers available.

using one of those VW golf type antennas in place or near the rear hatch sprayer is common.

only time ive had my antenna fall off is when i used a 76 styrofoam ball at tip. too much drag pulled it off eventually.

I was hoping to keep using that sprayer... except it's clogged anyway at the moment.

From that installation I would expect terrible reception even with a fiberglass fender. With a steel or CF fender the performance would be considerably worse.

I am looking into something like this:

The instructions stated that it cant be under metal. Thinking maybe mount it underneeth the front widsheild wiper cowl. Then using a crx antenna delete on the car.
I have the exact same one, routed up the side of the interior and stuck on the window in the top passenger corner. It works great.

Perfect. Will the wire make it to the trunk?

Another good spot to mount this is under cluster cover. that's were my remote antenna is.

My replacement antenna is a power unit from a 3rd gen accord.
