First off, why the hell are you going through an automatic car wash??? CRAZY! Secondly, did it rip off the entire mounting shaft? If not, you can use an ez out bit to remove the bolt and replace w/OEM antenna off ebay, or upgrade to something else. StylinConcepts has a butt load of antennas offered and some are tight. I replaced my OEM w/ a billit shorty antenna that I powdercoated. Cant remember what I paid but it smoothed things out up there. I really need to take some pics and post so everything I talk about can be seen here on my replies. Go ahead and upgrade...it will be worth it in the long run when you start modding out everything else!
i didnt think about using a easy out. I had a shorty antenna on there, but when i went through the car wash it ripped it off right at the threads. What kind of prices are you getting with it getting it shaved. I thought about getting it shaved and getting a hidden antenna, but i got a feeling that its going to be expensive
