    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:

    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!

    This must be the little details that completes a fabulous install. Do you have any pics of the antenna conversion?

    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?

    Thanks.. Yes, I'm getting the same number of locks..same everything.. I took the BU-303 completely out of it's case to put it into the sharkfin..

    here is another crappy picture but you can see the wire coming out the back (everything is siliconed inside):
