    I really like that set-up, and the paint matches great in the pictures it looks like. And rattle can, it dont get any better than that! I am not really a fan of my radio shack magnet mount antenna

    That's just a trunk lip mount Wilson 1000. The cap and coil was originally white. A couple of weeks ago I painted them primer grey, but it was too dull. Spent a whole 3 bucks on a can of silver model paint this afternoon at a hobby shop and painted them. It's not a perfect match for the car's paint, but pretty close. I think it looks pretty good.

    Sometimes I get bored and do little chit like that. Doesn't cost much, easy too do, and looks good. It's also different, you don't see many antennas painted too match the cars.
