Hey folks, does anyone have pictures of the A-pillar top without the headliner in? I need to know if it's open at the top or not.

What I need to do is run an antenna wire from the dome light area down through the A-pillar and then up under the dash. My bus has a headliner so I don't know if it's open or not.

Thanks!

Yes, the dome light wire runs up the LH one, and the rear defog wire up the right.

How you'll fish something through with a headliner in the way will be a magic trick though.

Thanks busdaddy! Many things can be done with ignorance, optimism, and beer.

Yep, current antenna is really bad - very poor ground plane. I just need to suck it up and make the hole in my roof.

It will look pretty ridiculous with a huge tri-band antenna on the roof, but it will work well!

Shocked
