    I spent some time yesterday on my metal lathe. Took a piece of stainless steel scrap and made a Stubby/Fat.

    Looks great:Thumbsup:

    My antenna is missing from the base. Well I still have it in the glove box. All I have showing right now is the plastic nut, and the busted off mount:rolleyes5:.

    Yeah, I know, the shiney brushed finish stainless steel kind of sticks out. I have a few other parts for the Mini that I need to get powder coated black. I'll send them all together for a batch run.

    Re: Handmade "No Holes"

    Been at it again. Tired of getting tickets for no front plate. Was down at my shop yesterday and knocked out a SS plate holder.
