Question KC Slimlites install issue??

Guys, thanks for all the help with the stripped Torx screw, I finally drilled it and tapped new threads and got the windshield mount installed. The problem now is the passenger side KC Slimlite and the stereo antenna are touching a lot. What can be done to solve this short of bending the antenna? Can the antenna mount be rotated at all? Thanks for any help.

I had the same problem. I dont know if the mount can be rotated, but I wrapped the part of the antenna that was touching the light in electrical tape. Then wrapped It to the mount a few times to hold tension on it. Works fine, and its no longer wearing the finish off the lights and making me crazy.

The antenna mount can be rotated. Just put a towel in the jaws of a pair of pliers and grab the mount. Rotate it gently so that it is out of the way.
