My latest update to the car PC.. I was sick of seeing the black pimple on top of my car so I decided to buy a BMW style fake sharkfin antenna.. and stuff the contents of my BU-303 into it. It was a very tight fit but aftre some creative dremeling, everything works great and is water tight:
Very nice! Where did you find that sharkfin, I like!
Thanks man! You can get a prepainted one here or you can go to ebay and buy it for $9.95 unpainted..
Here's a kinda crappy further away pic of the antenna on the car.. (sorry I'm short on pics because it's winter around here )
Your car is very hot!!! One of the best installs I've seen. Great choice on covering up the GPS in the shark fin...looks so much better. Congrats. I may have to drive to MA to steal your ride!
much better, I love it!
I made a little subtle "NISMO" enhancment to my favorite MediaCar skin too.. If anyone would like it for their car send me a PM and I'll give you a download link:
Sorry Cris, I don't have any pics of the antenna conversion.. I was rather frustrated at the time (because BU-303 was off by only like 1/8" !!!) and I didn't think to take pics.. I spent like 4 hours with the dremel trying to get that 1/8 to fit..
If I had to do it again.. I think I would find a slighly bigger shell..

@leemik, Great install man. I really like the shark fin cover for the gps receiver. Just one question about it. Did you see a difference in the reception after you covered the receiver with the cover? or are you still getting the same number of locks?
