Just a little FYI. I bought a brand new NIB OEM ac delco antenna. Installed in the car, freshly painted and all. Well. It snapped the nylon immediately. Now I had to pry and mess with the fender and bolts, agitating the new paint to get the thing out.

So, replace your nylon or replace with the steel cable before putting it in!! No matter how “new” it is. 35 years coiled up, it bound to snap. Here’s a pic of what came out of mine.
