Whats with the 3m clear film placed along and around the rear clamshell butresses. I wonder if I could remove the the clear, and just have the paint exposed.

Do we really need a clear plastic coating on the rear deck where the top is attached to the rear deck butresses?? :rolleyes: :devil:

Don't be the first to remove it Mitch! :nono:

You would be amazed at how quickly fabric can wear through paint. I moved 1000 miles once with a step-side pickup and a plastic tarp over the contents of the box. Where the tarp hit the fenders it wore through the paint.

My guess would be that early testing of the Sols proved that the flying butresses were flapping enough to strip the paint down to the primer in no time at all.

Pontiac thought so. Corvettes have them too. I would say remove it at your own risk. It's your car. ;)

Now, now... If he lives in Perfectville where it stays 70 degrees year round, never rains, birds only sh*t on the ground and people never steal things out of open topped cars then he obviously plans on removing the top altogether because he would never put it up. Therefore if there's no top to go up, theres no sense in having the 3M.

Hell, just shave the chrome receptacles too! ;)

The women all have perfectly proportioned bodies and are as lustful as you could ever wish for. A river of beer flows through the center of town. All the toilet seats are made of gold. Lunches are free everywhere on Sunday.

*sigh* We've got the Indians, Fever, Ice, Firebirds, Greyhounds, Jaguires, Bulldogs, and some others, too! ;)

But ohh man... I hear the Colts are going to the Super Bowl in this magical place that Papa San speaks of.

Gold toilets. :lol:

I'm afraid RODEO might drown trying to cross the river.

You whores. ;) I'm going to bed for the night.

I predict this thread will be locked by the time I wake, at the rate you all are going.

I think the new rule should be:

-When the parent post has been addressed correctly, the thread is then thrown into anarchy and anything goes.
