Antenna quit working

Few years ago I had my a power antenna rebuild by somebody on the form, but I cannot remember who they are. Does anybody here know who rebuilds power antennas? Thanks

I used to rebuild them. If the cable is broken, you can still get cables, but they are about 1/2 inch too long, and will break in short order. Someone on the longroof forum repaired an antenna with string trimmer line. It is somewhat tedious, but if you measure it correctly, it will work.

The place to get the cable is: Caprice Power Antenna Parts 1991-1996, 2210617, 22087015

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, Impala rims, Hydroboost, Recaros, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH
