    Getting ready to wrap the roof of a Chevy truck and want to remove the airplane wing looking antenna used for the On Star. Anyone know how to remove it without breaking it? Or any tips on working around it?

    Do a cut when you get to it then trim nicely around. You get use to them. I cut the hole before slide the antenna through and voila. Beats removing the headliner.

    Much better than under-cheaping it though ;)

    Thanks guys! Just finished the roof, cut a slit for it like you said. Worked great!!
    I've done some large partial wraps on vans & the box of a moving truck, but this is my first all over wrap on a nice Z71 truck and want it to be right. I'll post some pictures taken during the install when I finish it. (Hopefully tomorrow)
    Thanks again.

    In the future:

    If it takes you longer to remove the object then it does to just wrap around it, I would suggest wrapping around it.

    I would also suspect writing a post about it will take longer than wrapping around it.

    Usually you have to pull the headliner down a little to access the bolts to remove it.
