RE: Rice-boy type 44?

I guess what I mean by excessive is putting lights on to put lights on, as 
opposed to adding visibility at night.

I hear you about the paint. The Audi in the pictures that were posted was 
horrible. I think he should have had the decency to have the rear badges 
removed so he could paint under them, instead of simply painting a square 
around them.

At least that's my opinion...
