retractable radio antenna

Does anyone besides Auto Loc (at $130.00) make a retractable antenna where the button on the end can be trimmed flush with the sheetmetal surface?

Gennie Shifter has a $130 + $10 weatherproofer (phew !!! they doubled in price over the past few years)

Crutchfield has 3 'universals' from $60 to $90

Isn't this just a bracket that goes on the underside of the fender so that the bezel that normally holds the antenna body doesn't show? Why can't you just make your own bracket and spot weld it to the underside of the fender? Then, you can use any power antenna. I buy 90s vintage GM power antennas for $15 all day long at the local wrecking yard.
