    Do you guys think this would work?

    the aerial base on my mk4 is shagged, rubber seal is pretty much dead, so it got me to thinking....

    could i relocate the aerial and base inside the car, possibly mount it to the pillar on the boot
    , and retain radio reception?

    then obviously get a bodyshop to smooth out and spray over the hole that remains.

    just a thought, not sure if it would be doable though.

    It is doable, but is alot of work to cover the hole up, it would have to be welded shut, smoothed down carefully, then the roof completly resprayed, i was gonna have it done, but thought against it.

    Plus you will have the problem of what to do with your rear window washer jet, as it's built into the aerial base.

    well simple one for me there, cos mine doesnt appear to work. i think if i did do it i'd de-wiper the back too, but tbh it would prob be far cheaper and easier to just find a decent aerial base at the scrappy.

    I wouldn't mind doing it for the crack though.
