Cool Functional shark fin antenna? GASP! I want one

I've read in quite a few place how most people wanna get rid of that bump for satellite radio(above rear glass)

well i wanna add a little touch and install a small BMW-esqe shark fin antenna in that area.
and GASP possibly add a couple of rear facing(discreet) LEDs on that shark fin.
Most of you are shaking you heads, saying no.

I dont think i want to retain satellite radio functionality (but possibly want to revert to it If selling a car)
so what I'm looking for, is a place where i can get that shark fin(unpainted)
and help how to rewire the antenna connections to power couple of LEDs(i think i can manage, but still get your input)

I've thought about this a little bit before too... Not the LED's, but the sharkfin:

Unpainted caps are here. I don't know what's inside the existing XM antenna, it might be possible to fit the guts inside the sharkfin cover. You might have to run your own power up there though, I don't think the XM antenna would carry much voltage at all.

Those are actually called vortex generators.

Also, way to revive a dead thread.
