    Hey guys:
    Need some help here...I did a search and can't find anything.....here goes:
    Some a-hole tore off my antenna....yesterday I finally got the new mast installed and fished antenna wire through the front fender (royal PITA)- now, do I have to pull apart the dash to get to the back of the radio so I can plug in the damn wire?
    Can someone send me a suggestion or a DIY/video link or some sugggestions, please?
    Thankx, in advance.

    Thankx for the response. I was able to take car of it, with a bit of patience...used a string to thread the new shorty antenna through the door (inner fender access) and up into place so I could screw the cap on. Next, by taping the new end to the old wire, I was able to feed the new end through the fender hole and re-installed the rubber grommet so no water/air leak on passenger side footwell. Then, with a bit of research in here, learned how to partially remove the center stack, access the radio and done! (only one small scratch on the fender)..... felt pretty good.
