I cut the hole for the antenna and applied the fabric gromet thingy, just like the instructions, but it keeps stretching and tearing the fabric. Hopefully it'll stop eventually.

Remove the antenna. Store it in the trunk.

I bet its a power antenna and its stuck up like mine was till I bought a new one...

Mine tells me where the front it too, but its alittle tight, wish it was alittle loose like yours, oh well.

Exacto. Mine is actually made for cars up to 19'. It'* actually tight around the bottom, I'd hate to stretch it over a 19' car (I measured mine to be 17').

Don't count on the tear stopping. Apply an iron-on patch to the OUTSIDE so it doesn't rub against the paint, and punch another new hole. Be careful. That cover fabric may melt.
