pics of the antenna!

I need some input here.... do you HAM guys thing it would be OK to put a threaded joint like I did for the bottom part on the main part of the antenna to make it break down a little bit more? My only concerns are that the threaded portion is tapered so over time the overall length of the radiating element may get a bit shorter.... that and maybe the union is not cylindrical so maybe it'd make it radiate funky.

What do you guys think?

EDIT: I just reread my thread and realized that this was one of the first questions I asked!!! Sorry!
