    It is easy. Make sure you buy a housing with the rails on the inside.

    personally i've been thinking about this for a while now. i'm torn between the green, dark blue or the black. i think the black may look best because i can't seem to find any antenna covers that aren't black. would be a little smoother looking. slightly more "3g'ish"
