There, I fixed It! Part 2

Yoni's post is not ready yet, so I am stepping in a day early to make sure you get your fix.

The antenna on my car is supposed to retract into the back of my car when the radio is not on, but it doesn't.  As a result the antenna got a little bent, it was not a big deal.  However, one day while parking near a friends house I drove under a low hanging tree and really bent the antenna.  I knew that I had to act fast or loose the antenna entirely. 

Duct tape to the rescue!!!
Duct tape and wooden shish kebob skewers.
There, I fixed it.  Now the antenna is strong straight and I get better radio reception than I used to.


  1. Was that plain old duct tape (which shouldn't be used on real ducting), or actual duct sealing tape (ie: the metallic foil tape)?

  2. It was plain old duct tape. Not even very good duct tape, but it was what I had.

  3. You've done a good job! Good to know.. hmmm planning to try this, I ahve the same problem. Thanks anyways!
