That was excellent piece of advise Dr.
Something that I had completely overlooked
My friend owns an accessories shop in pune. He generally uses the Nippon Black Tape. I'll borrow some from him.
But before that let me try and reposition the antenna differently to see if I can reduce the gap even further.
In my excitement that the antenna had come I took some time off from office to check it out, so, for lack of time, I don't think I have tried all positions properly.
Unless it does sit firmly on the roof surface I'll postpone the installation till sunday. That's when I shall have enough time to ensure it is done as perfectly as possible.
Thanks again for the advise.
The fact that you can't physically see the product before buying is what makes online purchase slightly tricky. Especially from China where it takes so long to reach you and return is not all that simple. That's the sole reason I am taking as much advise from you all before I purchase the LED
PS: Philips has introduced T10 projector lamps (55 lumen for parking bulb replacements) in India for an exorbitant price of Rs.1500/- a pair.
