Default Another 07-13 GM antenna mount help.

As some of you know I had a Dark Blue 2005 Tahoe with 3 NMO installed on the roof. I had no problems since I could never get my Tahoe into the garage. I have since upgraded vehicles to a mint conduction / very low miles, Black 2007 Tahoe. With this vehicle I want to keep it garaged when at the house. Problem is my garage entrance has no clearance so drilling and installing my Larsen tri-banders are out of the question.

I know glass mounts are poor antennas. I'm interested in a front passenger fender install. Seeing the 07-13 don't have radio antennas this would be the perfect spot. I looked at a few NMO fender mounts online but I don't like the fact that they hang slightly over the edge. I'm trying to keep the vehicle clean without a metal bracket hanging off the side. I have seen a few brackets that actually angle inwards but there not NMO. I am looking for something for this general area, See attached photo.

If anyone has a suggestion be it bracket, mounting location, antenna, interior, even glass mount, I am open to ideas. Dual band VHF / UHF is a must. I can use a handheld for 800.

Note: I also looked at the Comet CP-5NMO idea for the rear hatch but the lift glass would hit it if I ever wanted to open it.

I also came across this today but it will not work. There is no metal to screw into in that area. http://www.theantennafarm.com/catalo...255b-1682.html
