has anyone ever painted their white, disc like shakesphere antenna? Mine works fine, I get 20+ digital channels in hd, but it's pretty sun kissed. According to shakeapheres site they are paintable. Wondering if anyone has done it successfully?

    Yes, keep us posted. My antenna looks like it could use some attention.

    Will do, after doing some research I may go with rustoleum spray paint from Home Depot, the 2x stuff. It says that it is great for plastic and for outdoor use. It is a paint and primer in one but I will use their primer first. Will let you know...

    Good call, will look at that, forgot it came as a spray. Wonder if there is a primer for it for the plastic?

    Buff with sandpaper, clean with rubbing alcohol or I use brake cleaner. No primer needed. I sprayed my plastic ring that turned yellow behind my VHF

    Now you really have my gears grinding! The ring behind my vhf is black but it's got cracks around the screw holes and I can't find a replacement. Could repair and fair the cracks and then spray with the black. Nice!

    Plasti dip worked well. Just one can from HD gave me at least 10 light coats. Was 60f outside and I only had to wait 10 min or so between coats. It's a little textured but the antenna was textured so it matches. Big upgrade for $6

    Ha, I'd rather you be right about the electrical panel topic. Hope you are just as right on that one .
