Rick, I dont want to maintenance the black paint. as I would want it looking mirrored all the time.

walking around the NATS I looked at every black car.  none looked good to me. other then the queens.  it scratches so easy.  plus the plan was to be blue from the start.

And it looks totally awesome :) Can't wait to see it with the decals on :) and have you decided to use the blue "SE" pin stripe kit?

I talked to him on the phone for a 1/2hr.  the guy seems to know his stuff.  I should have my front speaker in a day or so.
on the rear Im sending him my old one so he can install the speaker box mount and correct plug on it.  so I dont have to cut my speaker harness.
