While the radio was pulled out, I removed the 2 screws holding the plastic tray. It just slides out. I put a very small (about 1/8 inch) notch in the back edge of the tray. It's not even visible when the tray is put back in place. I'm not sure if it was really necessary, but I didn't want to crimp the antenna wire.
Mounting the antenna on the dash leaves a lot of excess wire, so I just zip-tied the excess. I mounted the antenna on the dash because it was the most convenient place. I didn't want it mounted through the third brake light because I use a drive-through carwash on occasion. The only time I lose reception is when pulling into the garage. Otherwise, it hasn't lost reception once.
Hope this helps.
