Default shark fin removal

For anyone out there who has done this themselves, did you have any problem with denting once it was removed? And the method that you used. Also what did you do to remove the wire running up the beading?

thanks, just got it off. took about 30 mins because its 40 degress outside and took longer to get the metal hot. pulled the cord all the way out and unhooked it from the trunk so it can easily be replaced again if I need. Looks soo much better though

Default Re: shark fin removal

Back from the dead, any one has pics that shows how it looks under the fin and the removal process?
Does that fine antenna has anything to do with bluetooth?
