Well i'll be honest,after over 30 yrs. & over 4 million miles driving. Missing a lot of time with wife & kids ,plus anniversaries,Birthdays, X-Mas,thanksgivings. But I have an awesome wife 2 put up with me & did a great job taking care of house kids and still worked full time. Mowed the lawn,snow blowed and shoveled driveway. Best part was she maid sure the bills were paid & I never had 2 worry about coming home and the check ing acct. being empty. But it probably won't be long before you can sit back with wife and relax 2. I been retired so long now. Being a slacker is so easy.

I would like honest opinions on what you think of the car with out the side hockey stripes. People that have see it in person said leave them off. My personnel opinion I like it,without.

Only because to me (who am I?) it is not Spike's car without the hockey stripes, I would like to see them on there. But it is your car so only you can decide. But it looks fine without them.

I like it without the hockey stripes better, way cleaner and less busy looking.
On another note the hockey stripes don't look bad, it's just a case of less is more in this situation!

The clear shield looks like it was put on great, hard to tell from the pictures. Are you happy with the job they did?
I feel mine was semi rushed and I intend to go back up there and get some imperfections out that they made when installing mine. Not a big rush because overall I'm happy with it and not one blemish or mark anywhere in my paint ... I need the install of it to be a 10 and I feel like I got more of an 8.....But the good thing is that we have ten year warranty, so there's no rush!

Anyways car looks awesome and I'm very anxious to finally meet you and that WHIP, been long enough. Also when we do finally meet I'd like to talk to you on the rear diffuser, I want to do Quad Tips and I know you cut yours and wanted to see if you can help me with that.
