new antenna

i got tired of the antenna getting caught on things including my rc box so i made a funtional whip antenna similar to wrcracer's and draconious's idea (thanks for the idea).
i figured it would be easier to make a long one, bending through the body rather than having a detachable connection. alright, i was to lazy to work that out. anyway i insulated it and tested it. it works great. i couldn't test the range due to the freezing weather and me not wanting to stand out in the freezing wind. i'll try that on a warmer day and let you guys know.

i put some pictures in my album, i'll put some here.
chassis
nice picture

comment/ideas/questions welcome.

Yep thats what I was talkin about!

Hey you still got one fog light left, better break that off... so far every overland Ive seen has broken them off they need tomake small parts like that on the Z rubber.. or someting.

what kind of wire did you use? i think that will be my first mod.

got my pajero this week. oh man, is it fun! already got it dirty, broke one fog light off too. having a blast. my friend got the other pajero and broke the steering knuckle within 5 mins! did a good fix-up with super glue, though. i think we'll be ordering alloy knuckles as back-ups, though.

i would use .032" or .025" music/piano wire. it can usually be found anywhere you buy k&s metal stock.

made a whip antenna. looks much cooler now. i got wire that's a little heavier than i needed though, so i think i'll get some narrower stuff and make another one.





one question, arch2b: what did you use on top as an antenna clip? i just made a little wire loop but i'd like to find something cooler looking.

brush guard next--i keep slamming into things
