Default Antenna question

I use my stereo daily, but literally never listen to the radio, so I
took my non-power antenna mast off of the car. I noticed on another
miata that was missing its antenna that the antenna receiving threads
had become rusty.

I am looking for something to plug the hole with, hoping that someone
has found that perfectly-sized black rubber piece from something common
that fits.
I have also considered a black screw with a tiny rubber o-ring, so if
anyone knows the thread size off hand, that would be helpful.

Thanks,

Pat

Almost any auto supply store can fix you up with a rubber plug, just
tell them the hole size.

I'll go take a look, but I have bad luck getting good help at most of
our auto store around here. Maybe I can find a package of them on the
shelf. :-/

Thanks,

Pat

Sheesh, I have to tell you everything? Find a young, beautiful, well
built female type wearing not much. Ask her to go to the store with
you. You'll get all the help you want and then some (unless the clerk
is female, if so, you're on your own!) <g>

The chain places, Checker/Shuck/Kragen or Pep Boys or Auto Zone will
probably have a section of misc. parts such as springs, nuts, screws
and... plugs! If not, you're more likely to get knowledgeable help in
a "real" auto parts store such as NAPA or some such.

Pretty much, yes. :-)

I would, but my miata's babe magnet burned up long ago, and with a
self-portrait like this, it is hard to get them in the car.

This lovely piece of handcrafted Norwegian art goes off in about an
hour. Don't miss your chance to own this lovely creature! ;-)

I don't know, the female clerk at the local Autozone would probably
ignore me, as most women do, but she would likely be all smiles for a
hottie in a bikini. ;-)
