    well i had already bid on it before you even knew about it

    but i spoke to soon about the decals as there was a note in the box that i dident read till now saying "the reason for the camo paint job was that the previous owner had applied ss decals so it was painted to be sold on ebay" why cant these morons just leave well alone maybe atleast there may be some original paint..................maybe

    Now that looks 100% on what it did, and I think your right, that is some original paint, great job!!

    Love the impact hole

    Just a helpful idea, have you tried the paint stripper on your stereo?? It might turn out to be a keeper

    Cheers,
