Those of you who have had your roof wrapped

So I'm having my roof wrapped in CF next week. I'm just curious how you remove the shark fin antenna to wrap around it or to make it easier to wrap. Is it possible or is it glued to the roof. I know the satellite radio antenna is under it but its just a cover right? Anyway I believe the guy is going to attemp to wrap around it and I'm sure he can as I've seen his work and he does excellent job. I was just wondering if this is easily removable to make it a bit easier for him. Also you guys that wrappednthe fin did it interfear with reception? Thanks in advance guys.

Try posting this on the three series forum also since I know that is a common mod. Didn't wrap my roof sorry!

Good luck!

Most people or installers will use some dental floss to remove the shark fin antenna.

pry up gently with plastic pry tools...
