I agree a little long but pretty easy with copy and paste...2 members with 40 or less words. :)
Hey pgarci01 why did you remove pinstripes?...Freds look great and I saw some on a dealer lot and want some. You must be really going for "clean." I might re-think.
Looks like my post was somewhat soon as I had thought more had changed oil by now and more miles.
If I had a black CT I would/might trim bottom grooved area with bed liner rock guard and probably front bottom as well?
I got 'screwed on EW also but it felt good at the time.
Army Dad I was going to try to MM on oil but can't seem to be able to. I did on my Mercedes but I had bought it used and knew I would not have it as long as this CT (reason EW was bought).

Anyhow, thanks for the repsponses folks!

I didn't remove them yet. They are hand painted and definitely nice but I'm trying to black out the chrome window trim and idk if the pinstripes will look good after I do that. If it looks good I'll keep them. I know some pinstripes are just stickers and some are done by hand. The pinstripes on my car are different than Fred's here's some pics.

And initially told them no on the EW but they made me feel like I was making the biggest mistake ever and I got tricked into it lol. He got me with the old health insurance trick and that "don't cheat yourself for 10 bucks extra a month" lol.
