Drill a hole in your fender, attach the wire to your HU. The bigger question is: Why?

Wouldn't fit on fender. Those need to be grounded to metal fender on much older cars.

I got bronze metal rear window tint and lost am reception. Most likely will be going on the rear fender.

Ceramic tint is a better option.

Ceramic tint is black or blue. I have a redish brown 428ix and preferred bronze it looks great.

AM needs a ground plate for reception which is why these were mounted on a metal part. Mounting on a plastic bumper isn't going to do much for you.

Also, car radios years ago needed a resistor tuned for antenna coax length. Haven't seen it mentioned for decades ( as after market installs as less common) so perhaps these are automatically trimmed now
