Re:Registry inquire

Sherri,
There is nothing that will tell you the original stripe color, not even the Marti report. However, the color usually matched the interior color (or close to), ie if the interior is black the stripe was black, or if the interior was white the stripe was white. This is not always the case, if the interior/exterior are black the stripe would be white. It was not a standard thing.

One place to look even if your car has been repainted is the edges of the door. I had no stripe on my car and the second owner got it that way so he did not know the color. I looked at the front edge of the door and you could see the stripes, which had been overpainted. I scraped off the paint and saw black. You can also check the scoops if you need to replace the screens.

I hope that helps you.

Doug
