Has anybody been able to install a functional shark fin? I've read that people have put them on but cut part of the antenna or something like that.

I'd like to take the antenna wire and directly connect it to the fin if that's even possible providing there is a piece that fits our cars.

If you can get a shark fin to work, let me know. I think a shark fin would look awesome on the hatches especially.

Okay well I e-mailed a company called visual garage about shark fins on focuses around 1:15pm today and we'll see what they say.

They work out of Vancouver, BC, Canada so at leat they're not too far if they can sell any of us the piece.

http://www.visualgarage.com/Product_What_Is_It.html

I found them through one of the threads in this forum.

I just called Ford and the base costs $12.00 CAD and the actual antenna costs $46 CAD all before taxes>> grand total with taxes>> 12.00+46.00 +13.95% fed(6%) and prov(7.5%) taxes together>> $66.09

I'm not sure how that would look placed at the front of the roofline. Most of those are placed at the rear of the roof.

Maybe someone could photoshop one on and see what it looks like.

Personally, I don't mind the long stock antenna but I'm sure the fin wouldn't look bad on the front of the car.

So far no word back from the company I e-mailed.

I don't think that would look half bad.

Hi Andrew and all other guys, I've been looking at the same site at work (had to kill some time LOL). One of my colleagues has some connections with Spinelli and a few other dealers and will look in to this for me. As soon I have a reply from him and I find one available I let you all know 'cause I'm going for this. I've been trying to visualize the fin on the roof and even if its all upfront, the space is there and it would just look different than all other fin equipped cars. I'll keep in touch with you all and as soon I have a pic I'll post it for sure.
See ya'll later,
Paul.

Still no word from that company. I don't think I can trust them even if they did reply.

All I asked was if it's possible to put one of their antennas on our cars! If not, do they know if some other company does.
