Well I live in Texas
, so that about says it all there - blazing heat, the UV way of life, hail, wind, etc. It's not a pretty place for a car to live unfortunately. Luckily I park in a garage when I'm at work but outside at night. I'm really considering it - because that is true, if its that bad then I could just either replace the stripes, or maybe by then have the cash to get them painted on! I'll force my wife to watch Gone In 60 Seconds again and convince her the car made me do it.
BTW I cannot tell you how GLAD I am that my dealer didn't insist on putting the side stripe on there. To each his own, but of the 3 mustangs I've owned none of them have had the rocker stripes - and none ever will. Even if I had a GT500 or GT350 I'd rip those things off!
