Anyone use the Butler cup holder that mounts under the radio ant. and how do you like it. Do you have to take the ant all the way off to mount or just losen it? Does it mount right against the paint and does that affect the paint in any way?

Thanks

bought mine at wing ding this year, and my wife love's it, does not stick out real far, and when you take the cup holder and screw out it folds up real nice and out of the way, yes you do have to take annt. bolts all the way out to mount it, and they supply a foam gasket to put between it and the paint, very good product,

We have it and love it. You do have to take antenna off to mount it, but no problem doing that. It almost disappears when not in use. One thing you have to watch out for. When you open the trunk and the cup is in the holder you have to make sure the cup is swung outward otherwise the trunk lid will contact the cup.

Yep that is correct and it will bend your straw! But it is great anyway and the sun shining on it will not blind you in any way. Buy both size compression rings (cup holders) and both size cups for both of you and a couple of extra straws while your at it and you will be glad you did.
