I sold my old fender last year and forgot to get the antenna hole size and measurements where to drill it. Can anyone help?
Thanks, Ed

The PO replaced my fender and put the antenna under the dash. I like the no hole fender. Reception is crappy, but I use my phone anyway.

Depends on the particular antenna, they are all different.

The hole in my 67 fender is 1.12" diameter measured with an electronic caliper.

Start with a small hole and go up in steps till it fits.
Those stepped allin one hole drills work quite well in sheet metal, regular twist drills will auger in unless sharpened to deal with thin materials.

I welded up the hole in mine. Hidden antennas are cheap and better than the original mast. Most people run spotify or something similar anyway, so maybe consider going that route.
