    I had to cut a big chunk out of the tube.
    Now I have to stiffen it from the inside.
    Lots of surgery on this one.
    At least it fits over the motor and bracket now.

    That bend came out nice, are you sure there is enough room in the bottom of the fender to clear the bend?

    I am almost ready to weld the power antenna bypass post on my fender reinforcement bar.
    After welding, I will cut the middle bar out, grind and paint.

    Wait until you see my chromed power steering reservoir.
    I don't have every option.
    No rear seat, therfore no cargo cover.
    Also no electric shocks (lost the bid) but they would not have fit under the cruise vacuum ball anyway.
    The car looks a lot different since I did that video.
    I will update it once I finish the suspension.
    I still have to pick up my big Southwest Speed order.
    My goal is to make a Festiva that should have come from the factory.
    I just finished throwing some Bounce sheets into the cab for the winter.
    Strange weather this year. It's still very mild and the leaves are on the trees.
    If the sun is pumping out more heat, and it's going to warm up no matter if we took all the cars off the road and shut down all the factories, does that mean we still have to suck it up and salute when big government puts a carbon tax on everything? Hurry 2034.

    Power antenna question:
    I know that the missing third terminal on the factory radio connector can be used to detect a radio on/off condition. I need to know what I would have to do in order to make the antenna go up or down with the radio. Is there a special device that cuts power immediately after an antenna stall?

    Yup. I did everything at once. Power windows, remote progressive power locks, power gas popper, lighted vanity visors, under dash courtesy lights, cruise control and idle up for A/C and P/S. I also cut out all the wires for the ECA and trashed it. I thought it would be best to do all the wiring ar one time.
    Fun. Wow. Fantasy Island. It was a learning experience (especially progressiva locks). I hope everyone saved a copy of the triple relay progressive lock diagram from the power door locks thread. Progressive means only the driver's door lock opens on the first push of the remote and all three locks open on the second push. Believe me, you smile when you figure it out and see it work.

    Whoa! It took almost a year and a half to wire it up?

    All wired up. Two wires to the motor. Up and down.

    I have decided to use a relay to protect the antenna motor. From what I understand, the original North American Festiva radio does not have an a power antenna signal for auto up when the radio is turned on, or auto down when the radio is shut off. I am going to have to wire this up for manual operation only. I am not going to buy a European stereo. I will give a little extra length to the signal wire just in case someday I can afford the radio of my dreams.
