    im not diggin it and i dont really think it would look good on a 2nd gen teg

    although it seems to be the "common" thing to do i would have to say shave it

    Is that why my buddy has that antenna in his windshield?

    Crazy, I didn't know that was the style.

    Looks ok frenched, but shaved is much cleaner. Plus, you'd have to clean in that area, and hope that it never rusts.

    I vote shave.

    I guess- I'm talking about the stick on antennas that lay on your windshield glass, not the smaller rubber looking whip antennas.

    Whatever you decide to do, make sure you still have an antenna of some sort. I put the factory block off plate on my civic, and now I can't even get local stations, not that I want to listen to Clear Channel radio anyway....

    I got an amplified antenna off ebay and shaved the stock antenna. You just need a filler piece welded in and you can smooth it and paint it to look like it was never there. Just dont get any weld spatter on the window, itll make it shatter into a billion pieces. Thats not even that bad of an exageration.
