    I fixed up my headlights.

    A quick sanding and some clear coat...
    Looks a lot better.







    I fixed my antenna too !!
    I just cut off the old rotten rubber.
    I'm kinda diggin the new look !!

    I started with Colgate then 2500 grit sandpaper but it was the clear coat that made the biggest difference.
    The sandpaper left it looking kinda cloudy.

    That antenna looks crazy, PM me your address, you can have my original that never saw the UV of daytime.....except for the minute or 2 when car was new before replacing it for the same reasons as in your 2nd pic........kayaks/surfboards. It never has been parked in the sun. It was only exposed to UV when driving.

    And it's extra bendy now too so it doesn't rub so hard on my watercraft...

    mine came with a stubby metal one that is extendable. I don't think i've ever used it though, all I listen to is SiriusXM or occasionally Pandora. I'm pretty sure all of my presets are still set at 87.7 or whatever they came with from the factory
