    Yeah I'm hoping to be able to bring it by and do some on it. I do have the auto strip but it didn't really seem to work on the beretta I had. But I do have some.

    Just a update. I've got some mirrors to put on in the am since one of mine fell off. I've done a few things to it and will post new pics tomorrow sometime. Hope ya like it. The mirrors I got for it are better looking then the m3's on my 88 blazer and I think they will make it look really good. peace.

    Ok Here's a few new pics. They're not perfect but it does look better. I still have to take off the pin stripes but I don't have any sand paper or primer so I have to stop for now. I've got the new mirrors on it and they look good. They're about the same size as the stock ones but they have a sporty look to them. Now I can see whne I change lanes. lol

    If those pinstripes are painted on, EasyOff oven cleaner will take them off and not hurt the paint underneath. You may be able to see where they were from the sun fade of the rest of the paint. A little polishing / buffing should blend it. I saw this done on a truck a friend of mine bought with lettering from the previous owner / company. Turned out good. Try it on a small area. It could save sanding and priming for now, especially if repainting the whole thing is not in the near future.

    The pin stripe should be a sticker, scratch n peel. Its the same one that was on mine just a different color.

    Hey thanks I'll keep that in mind. But they do look like they were added and they are stickers. I'm not gonna paint it soon till I can get the top taken care of. It's got to much rust. I'm not really totally worried about the paint. I just want to keep it looking ok foir now so it don't look too bad when I go out on a date. But I'm hoping to paint it next year. Just not sure when. I was wondering tho would a heat gun help me any?

    The straight ones I'm not sure about but the others that shape a image and faded on there pretty bad. But I'm hoping the pin stripes down the side won't be painted on and won't be too hard to do. I'm just enjoying the results so far it looks alot better. Thanks.

    They should be stick-on.

    Check out http://www.goodspeedmotoring.com/?page=decalremoval

    I wouldn't use the eraser tool though...might damage the paint if you aren't careful.

    Hey thanks for the tip. I'm hoping to have time soon to take it all off. Just got to find me a heat gun. Thanks again.

    The weather's probably still warm enough in Alabama to let it sit out in the hot sun for a few hours, then just get a hairdryer...

    After you get the adhesive gunk removed, use a good cutting wax to blend, then a good finishing wax to seal. You should be good to go...upload pics when you're done.

    Um I dunno. It drove fine but I have some sad news. I had to let it go back to the dealer. The trans went out last night and I've worked on it for the last 4 weeks since I got it and I'm just not gonna put more money in it. I've put in enough already. I'll have to get another one sometime later in life. Thanks again guys.

    Yeah I know. I wish I could have kept it. I really wanted something nice for my kids and I to ride in. It was nice. But just needed too much work after what I have already put in it. I guess it just wasn't meant to be this time. Maybe next time.
