Shark antenna

Has anyone changed there regular antena to a shark fin styled antena? I wana buy a cover for the focus cause I dont use it as a daily and I wana cover it most of the time to protect it from weather and other cars scratching my sides but my antena has always been a reason why I dont buy a cover. I just figured I'd ask if anyone has seen one or done it to their focus and if so maybe you can recommend me where to get them?

you can get a factory cover from ford, but you will need the signal booster to use the radio.

honestly i jus thought this now..'
take the whole antenna out and patch or plug the hole..
re route the antenna to underneath the trunk lid or better yet, feed the wire cable thru the trunk lid and attach to the window pointing up and parallel with window ((:

Depends how difficult you find pressing a piece of plastic with double sided tape on it onto a roof.
