Ok, I have a ARK short antenna that I have had for about 2 years now. When I purchaesd it it was black. I just noticed yesterday that it is now silver. Could it be that the color faded? Or could it be that someone switched antennas with me ? (Which is highly unlikely) BTW I know for a fact that it was black when I washed the car 2 months ago.

mine was bright red when purchased, but it has faded somewhat to a lighter red. so, it is possible that is has just simply faded. do you have all four seasons including harsh winters?

Mine is only 6 months old, and it looks more graphite now than black, I bet it just faded and you are just really noticing it for the first time!

Maybe an alien from the Andromeda came along and has done some evil experiences with your ARK antenna... Be careful with that ! By touching the antenna, you may have a baby alien in your body, which will tear your chest away when it'll be full grown !

No, seriously, that's an odd story.

Yeah, I didn't like the silver on my Tiburon, so I just switched with a random Tiburon that had a black antenna, sorry buddy. I thought it looked pretty good though...

I can't see why not, sand it down a bit, and spray it.

lol i went through a carwash and it tore all the rubber off my s2k antenna. Then i got the same style billet antenna made by meet-my-tib-boo that was black. It started fading to a purplish color and i repainted it and its looked fine since.

HHmm??
How about quality I agree! 6buks antenna from AutoZone that I should have before was better quality than 23$ s2000 antenna from Honda, but " like they say Honda is the best" .Anyway, sometimes cheper is better.
