I'm just worried if I remove it the paint underneath will reveal that I use to have a pinstripe before lol

UPDATE!!! So its been awhile since I've updated my build so i figure now is a good time since i'm at work and bored out of my mind.
-ENGINE : I just installed a KO Down-pipe which i honestly love the sound and response is get from it which was well worth every penny, picked up a 1988 MKIII Supra CT26A Turbo for pretty much dirt and planning on rebuilding it, i understand it isn't a huge upgrade and most prefer just going with aftermarket but i'm happy and hoping that along with the new down-pipe and slightly bigger turbo ill gain a little more HP out of my 165.

-Exterior: other then finding a Yakima Roof rack that fits the gutter of or cars that's pretty much it, only thing i'm trying to add to that roof rack is a small basket to place my spare tire on so that i can make more room in the trunk. :D

-PROBLEMS: Last but not least the issues, as if now i seem to have a pretty bad oil leak right under the turbo where the banjo fitting is so it could be something on top but won't be able to get to it until the turbo is rebuilt, i also have a leak where the down-pipe meets the mid-pipe so i'm pretty sure its its just the gasket that goes between both.
