Best experience is for you to hop in and have your GF hose the car down. Then you'll know how much she honestly loves you and where your leaks are coming from. Personal experience is a great learning tool. I use it frequently when people stop over for help on their cars.

yeah its leaking from outside where the antenna sits. I just stuffed it with some paper and put a piece of tape over it until I get another antenna.

Is the drain tube hooked up?

Keep in mind, most of us don't mess with the exterior nut and trim bezel when changing antennas. If that'* where yours is leaking from, you'll need to.

The drain tube at the bottom of the antenna assembly should be connected between the antenna motor housing and the fender. So the water that leaks in can drain out. Little black tube.

I think I removed that and through it in the field because I thought it was garbage. Unless, that was in my last bonnie, but I'ma go check and see. Oh and you can blame that on the alcohol because I was tipsy when I did it.
