    I thought the two side stripes were over the left front fender. Did you move them?

    No, just have yet to post a picture of them yet, and it might be a while since that arch was coming off. I pulled it all the way off and ordered a new set of clips for both sides just now.

    Those are good. They can be anything the person looking at them thinks they are. :Thumbsup:

    Maybe we should go with a virtual M/A shirt next year.

    Hey Nathan, I'm thinking of replacing my bushes with a PSRS from ALTA. Does yours make a noticeable difference? Do you use a lot of camber adjustment? Will they wear? or should I use some camber enhanced bushings?

    The PSRS are gone, replaced with poly bushings. Much quieter and still has a great feel.

    Thanks Nathan, this seems to be the common answer.

    From what I see the hot setup is to remove the PSRS if you have them. Me thinks the real hot setup is to never install them in the first place. :wink:

    :cornut: Looks more like a Humming Bird than a Gnat but Gnat's probably an inside play on names.:Thumbsup:

    Thanks. The roof graphic is the same as the graphic on the left rear as seen here.
