    time to get some sort of signal device in the 46...thinking about a frenched antenna in the rear of the front fender (46 pickup). any thoughts, tips, tricks...Have seen many with two antenna (antenni)? no problem with that...could kinda stagger 'em front to rear on the fender.

    Just lookin for input on this :D

    Hey Bob,

    Frenched antennas arn't to tough to do......

    Decide on the number ya want-?

    Staggered , slanted or vertical mount?

    Frenched, moulded or sculpted finished detail?

    Electrical tubing (emt) works well for the inner body of the tunnel. Weld
    a washer to the end of the emt to mount the antenna bezel to. Weld the
    emt to the fender that ya have cut/drilled a hole into, in your choice of
    location.French, mould or sculpt in lead (my choice) where the new antenna
    exits the fender surface, to your choice of design.
    Beat to fit and paint to suit!
