You can also mount them using a bracket which attaches to the front guard between the bonnet and the guard.

Have a look at the red fairmont in my gallery - you'll see a UHF antenna mounted on the right.

Yeah you need a "Z" bracket, about $8 from 4wd store, mounts in the boot/bonnet channel and comes out through the gap. I had a thick, black fiberglass one about 60cm tall and it gave really clear signal and looked really good. Unless you have a bullbar or nudge bar that is the way to go.

That's how the previous owner of my car had mounted them back in the day...

That is a good sign. It means that I have changed it enough so that nobody recognises it as his old car 8-)
