Default What do I use to plug 3PK antenna?

What is everyone using to plug up the original antenna on the 3PK? I'm using FASST and want to remove the original one.

THanks!

I used a rubber end that some use for putting over the carb or exhaust port. I think mine came off of a heater core from a car.

I just use an old ball point pen barrel with a wrap of electrical tape around it to plug the hole. It looks good and is cheap.

I use a plastic hole plug I picked up at Lowes for 50 cents... Perfect fit, and looks stock...They are located in the section with all the bolts and nuts... look in the drawers, they are labeled as a hole plug...

That stand-off for the stock antenna bothered me for some reason. Out came the trusty dremel and a sticker to cover the hole and problem solved. I'll never sell the radio as is, so it's not a problem as far as the next owner is concerned. In an emergency, I can still install a stock antenna. fyi
