One finishing touch I'd like to do to my sat ant. installation is to find some really good silver tape like the thick, super sticky tape supplied in the kit. I'd put a long, wide strip on to cover the black tape and wires between the roof and the door gasket. I think it would look much better. Anyone know of a source for that kind of tape?
Chuck, you should have clear tape in the kit, that's used for that purpose. Clear tape from the tail of the antenna, up to the gooey blob that seals the wires under the gasket.
The foil tape you refer to, I've seen for sealing HVAC in homes. I don't know if the adhesive is water resistant, so that would be my only concern there...
This picture shows it on mine, as I was doing it. The blob's not in place yet, nor is the rest of the clear tape which covered the wires all the way down and over the little cable guide that sits in the notch.
No, I also got the clear tape in the kit. I applied the tape as shown in the instructions and you can see one of the strips of black tape where it was applied right at the curve just below the roof line (with the hatch open of course). The clear tape went below that. I was just thinking that if I could find some silver (my MO is silver) tape, I could cover all that.
