Looks good, but bye bye to your long distance reception.

Then again, I never listen to the radio.

Doesnt Affect anything from what I have seen. I still get all my stations I would normally get.

I think I would rather keep the factory antenna stock, but thanks for sharing your idea on video. I'd recommend some dielectric grease on the tip &/or in the cap to minimize corrosion.

This is one of those things I really couldn't care less about. My wife is more concerned about the "length of my antenna" than I am.

Doesn't really bother me... but I would recommend protecting your car when you clip off the antenna. If that thing came down on your paint, that would most definitely result in a chip.
