Radio Antenna lead routing; '97 NAS

I need to re-install the antenna lead on my '97. I didn't take it out; the shop did before repainting. They put the antenna back in but didn't re-route the wiring; it's just coiled up inside the engine compartment. Any tips on the best way to re-install the antenna lead?

It looks like on my 97nas it follows an electrical harness behind the brake booster down along the firewall then up under and into the center seat box to the radio. Now if I can just figure out how to negate the static I might use the radio now and again.

Don't you hate it when things like this come back unfinished when you are paying people to do a job? It feels unfinished to me.

See if you can find where it went from the factory. If not, follow bundle of wires through the BH. I just ran a GMRS antenna wire using the same principle-and pushed it through the oval grommet just above the transmission tunnel where a CB antenna wire went through.

Yea; OTOH I don’t have to pay them to do it; they already got a fair amount of my money. Removing the center console is going to be a pain.

The antenna is still wired in my truck it just has a bad connection. Has anyone successfully used one as a wire pull to get the new line to the radio location in order to make the job easier?
