    Sharks fin colour coding

    Got a sharks fiin aerial on the my Avant but its a non-colour coded black item. I know with colour coded parking sensors a special ultrasonic type paint is used so as not to interfer with the sensors, does anyone know if I need the same special paint on my aerial because of transmissions or will regular paint do?
