Default Factory Installed?

I don't think this was a factory installed option. Overkill maybe?

Custom pinstriping and decal?

Probably the previous owner was a fan of fishing

It must of been custom. Bonnie94sse looked at it last Thursday and it appeared that a clearcoat was on top of the striping.

Sure it wasn't just wax? I HIGHLY doubt that they'd clearcoat over it....

Unless my eyes deceive me, it looks like a Trans Am shaker scoop on his hood.
Definitely not stock.

Kind of a cool looking detail if it ain't too big...

And I think the hood scoop you think you see is just a wierd reflection, but I could definitely be mistaken. Very shiny car, hard to tell.

It is definitely custom. And I wonder why that design is on the front door. Usually ppl have any design type thing on pinstriping it goes towards the back of the car. It doesn't look bad though, and it'* not too large.

But the striping WAS clearcoated over for sure. I'm wondering if maybe the car was repainted, then the striping was put on, then the clearcoat was last. Or maybe someone decided to put the striping on a few years ago, and just added another layer or two of clearcoat to help keep it permanent or less likely to be peeled off. Not a bad idea if you want it on there forever.
