Mobile antenna mount

The following method of mobile antenna mounting that I use may be helpful to others. Remove one of the rear bumper guards and cut off the top of it with a hacksaw. This cut is made so that a flat plate welded over the cut will provide sufficient area for mounting the antenna base mount. After the plate is cut and welded in place, the guard should be filed smooth. Drill the mounting holes for the base mount in the plate. The guard is then rechromed (this cost me $3.35) and mounted on the bumper. The modified guard can always be replaced with a standard one whenever desired.
