running the antenna wire up the B-pillar and onto the roof. 

Did you have to drill a hole in the roof?

The antenna doesn't come apart, so you'd need a sort of large hole to pass-through the connector that goes to the radio. I just have the wire going out through the driver side sliding door (tacky, but whatever); never noticed any leaking but the wire is also only like 24awg or something. Eventually, I'd like to get an antenna that uses NMO base - which does require drilling a hole, but it's sealed up when the antenna is put on. Here's a pic for those unsure of what NMO mounts look like.

I've heard of people sticking the satellite antenna on their dash in the windshield, but I don't know about all that. Mine on the driver-side roof loses signal when drive-thru's have that little overhang above me, even if it only covers half the van. So I don't understand how the dash can keep a reliable signal, but who knows. When I do the NMO, I'll probably end up putting it on the passenger side, instead.

Finally got the passenger airbag light in  (BK2Z-10A936-B)  Gosh this thing is obnoxious.  I might have to spray paint it black or put tape over the light
