Extended Gutter Mount

Is anyone aware of an extended "gutter mount" for NMO antennas? I need one to mount on my vehicle, but all of the ones that I have found are too short and do not have enough depth for my application.

I haven't been able to find anything on Tessco or through Google, just wondered if anyone has seen one.

Are you looking for a rain gutter mount (roof) or a fender mount (hood)?
For what vehicle are you looking?

Jake:

WestCrystal makes a number of vehicle-specific fender mounts, but Honda isn't listed on their website:

You could check with them to see if they have something new that might fit.

What I used to do was go get one of the flat deck brackets from Home Depot, paint it black, then pair it with the L-bracket.
