    dunno wrong person to ask

    theres also the consideration of buying a cheap shark fin, you may have a dramatic loss of reception which would annoy the crap outta me if id gone to all that trouble

    its the OEM Ariel with the long bit snipped off. drop a dab of apoxy on the top so its water tight again and bang.. you have a fully working Ariel that looks better than old thing that makes your car look like a bumper car! and its free!
