Installing an antenna

OK, my car has one of those stupid "mickey mouse" antennas, you know, those little 10-inch rubbery things. It doesn't pick up squat, and it's been put in the car in a half-arsed way. Now that I replaced the dying radio (got a Nakamichi now) and realised that the reception problems were independant of the receiver I need to get a new antenna. I've got no need for a power antenna (power antennas just freeze up anyway) and I'd be plenty happy with an original antenna if I could find one. My main problem is how to get the bloody thing situated in the fender. I don't see how to get "inside" the fender to route the antenna wires. Anyone done this before who can point me to a tech article about this? I couldn't find an article on Pelican about it.
