You don't want to cut the vinyl to lay around it, or you're afraid you'll screw it up i guess? Honestly man, I would take it in to have all your vinyl put on. You know how you can always tell when someone did a DIY window tint? I wouldn't want to chance it. You don't want to throw all that money for the wrap down the drain boss.

you cant hurt the stuff! you can role it up in a ball, blow dry it and boom back to normal, stuffs amazing! i at least want the antenna off, doesnt have to be the whole base but id like to. i know perrin sells shorty antennas and someone on here has a shark fin antenna so someone knows how to.

You're speaking of the 3M faux carbon fiber vinyl I'm assuming..

Sorry I'm still no help on your original question, but when are you wrapping the car and getting the sti wing? I'm excited to see results!

Something about fake carbon fiber on body panels screams wrong to me.

Ask Brad....ratfink. He did the sharkfin on his old STI. He should be able to answer your question on the roof antenna.
