As I said, your car, do what you want. I'm only here to bust nuts.

Hey Rikki, I've been meaning to ask you about your cool seats. It looks like you have more red trim than other I've seen, are they factory seats?

If you decide to remove the "Hash Mark" stripe you can use the heat gun to remove it, just be reasonable on how much heat and how close. I've taken many stripes and body side molding off with a Heat gun.
Great looking Car.

You have a nice set of heels, it's a 04 right? I'm guessing by the stripe and wheels. I put a ceramic coating on mine. Any other work done?

Do you have the stock gear set or have you changed it?

About mods, all this work was done by the previous owner and this is quirky but he sold it thru a consignment shop and didn't want to be contacted or bothered . That said I contacted where he had work done (heaven forbid he get his hands dirty LOL) and what the consigner told me it got headers, Magniflow, Varamax intake, cam and valve springs, 3:91 gears, and a tune. 485 on the dyno. Really launches hard with a little wheel hop which I have to address someday.
