EACH FIN IS PAINTED TO ORDER AND CAN TAKE UP TO 2 WEEKS BEFORE SHIPPING. PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 4 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY.

While designing the VG Shark Fin Antenna, we focused not only on creating a unique shape that is stylish and aerodynamic, but also in designing an antenna that would maintain AM/FM radio reception.

Utilizing fractal antenna technology, we were able to develop a functional antenna that fits inside the shark fin and retains radio reception within normally acceptable ranges. A fractal antenna is created using fractal geometry (repetition of a simple shape to form a repeating pattern) and has reception that rivals antenna designs 50% to 150% larger in size. Though the stock antenna will usually still provide better reception, through testing, we found that the VG Shark Fin Antenna performed consistently better than any stubby antenna fitted on the same car.

Using a coiled cord, the fractal antenna is attached to the stock antenna base with an attachment screw. The use of a coiled cord eliminates the extra cord that would otherwise be in the way of installation, allowing you easier positioning. 

A custom die-cut 3M double-sided adhesive gasket was designed to secure the VG Shark Fin Antenna in place, overtop of the antenna base. This 3M adhesive is used because of its bonding strength to the car and its nature of being removable without damaging the paint. Also it has good weatherability and is insensitive to contamination. 

The VG Shark Fin Antenna is made of injection molded ABS plastic. Each VG Shark Fin Antenna is painted and clear coated to match the OEM paint code of your car. We partnered with automotive body shops that specialize in painting so you can be assured that you will be receiving a high quality paint job!

Rating Great Buy
 
Got this antenna about two weeks ago and it just completes the look of my car. Color matched exactly to the original paint on the car. It was super easy to install. Radio works the same as before. And it gives my car a really smooth look. It is way better than the old antenna, which made my car look like a toy car. So if you're thinking about buying this product it is totally worth every penny.

Rating A should-be-first accessory....
 
I never understood why Chevy went with the long style antenna with so many other manufacturers going low profile. This solves my issue. The paint was a perfect match for my Sonic. Installation was a piece of cake with a foot or two of masking tape to use as alignment marks. I know enough about 3M adhesive to realize it probably isn't going to come off. In fact, I've had this through several of those car washes that drag loping big ole swaths of carpet like material across your hood and roof. Stays put. The only thing I added was a split ring washer between the antenna cable and the antenna base. Didn't want to take a chance of the screw loosening from vibration, then having to destroy the unit to repair. Reception is as good as factory, so no worries there. Good job BNR!

Rating Good fit, easy to install, looks much cleaner
 
Very easy to install, paint matched perfectly and quick turn around time (only took 4 days to have mine at my house since the date of order). Make sure you do it right and line up with masking tape, looks really fresh and I like it.

Great fitment and color was spot on. Looks like it came from the factory and I have noticed no change in reception when I play the radio.

Rating VERY NICE ANTENNA
 
Bought this for my Sonic. Paint match was spot on. Install takes 5 mins. Radio reception is as good as factory unit. Looks clean and sleek. Ordered another for second car. Goes well with the look of the car.
