    I like it. If I recall, the 35th SS' that weren't LEs could be had with a black Manta.

    I like it. I was going to do this with my car but decided to do the manta stripe on the hood. Have you thought about having it actually painted as opposed to just buying the decal?

    Having it painted would be the next step after the decal. I would hate to look at itweeks from now and wish I hadn't done it. Also have the dilemma of whether to make it matte or glossy.

    Yea I can understand that. I would personally do it glossy. I am not a fan of the matte. I'm sure you remember when I had mine done in matte and it looked like crap.

    Yea the painter sent me a picture of it and I had him strip it and the berger panel and do it again glossy. I dont think it looks bad.

    It's like a rubbery plastic in an aerosol can, you can spray it on and it peels off

    I like it here, I'm too far south though. Cost of living sucks here, gas, insurance, etc. all much cheaper a little further north
