Re: Removing XM antenna on roof
To avoid painting the roof, you could fab a blanking plate of maybe 1/8-inch-thick steel or aluminum to mount in place of the XM antenna.
Not a really good solution I know, and to do it right you'd really have to have a machinist make it so that the edges would have a nice bevel...
Then paint it to match your truck and most folks would never notice it.
By the time you do all that, you could almost have the hole in the roof plugged and the roof re-painted.
I don't care for my XM antenna either, but my truck is black, so it's not too noticeable.
Don't know why on earth GM didn't use a little "shark-fin" type antenna and mount it at the rear of the roof.
For that matter, the same antenna they used would be OK if they had mounted it ti the rear.
