    How to Program your key FOB write up.

    The link above walks you through programming the key fob, its also in the owners manual if you have that.

    Search for the manta stripe, several vendors have it, but many people have it painted on, mine is painted.

    it was cheap for me because I had a friend at the body shop do it for me. I can't imagine it cost much more then a couple hundred bucks. you can just pain it on top of the existing paint.

    ICK,,,,if you are going to paint it on,,,you should at the very least scuff the entire hood and re-clear the whole thing after the stripe is painted,,,so you don't have that dreaded "edge" from simply painting it over the existing paint. It's the only way a painted on stripe of any kind looks professional. That is unless you are trying to duplicate how the factory painted stripes back in the 60's or 70's.

    If you half ass it like that (excuse the expression) then you may as well just use the sticker and stick it on.

    i intend to have the whole car resprayed at some point in time so I figured that would be a waste of money to do all of that. Quite frankly I like the way it looks and how it has the edge. If you knew anything about me you would know that I don't half ass things. I am a perfectionist and just didnt see fit spending the extra money when I'm going to have the whole car repainted.

    Having the car repainted is one thing, I just wouldn't suggest this simple "spray it on" procedure to anyone else, even if it is the cheap way out.
    I would prefer to do it right, clear the whole hood, cut and buff so the stripe is slick with the rest of the car without the edges.

    Costs more money but looks more professional, that is if you really care that much about the car. Much easier to take care of too. Just my thoughts on it.
