Introduction: Covering a Spring Antenna
I recently replaced the antenna on my old viper remote with a spring to give me far better range.
Now it's time to make it look pretty.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Opening Up.
Dismantling the remote was easy.
Step 2: The Antenna Cover.
Using a piece of heat shrink, I slid the new cover over the spring antenna.
At the time I was cooking dinner so I used the stove burner heat to shrink the wrap onto the spring. Now it looks form fitting and way cooler.
Step 3: Finishing Touches.
I used black silicone adhesive to seal both ends of the antenna covering.
Step 4: Reassembly and Completion!
Quick reassembly and using the tie wrap to hold it all together. I used a little black silicone to seal off near the antenna. Job done!
