Yes, and what's so difficult about taking it off
and putting it onto a new body panel? I didn't
say you could do it at home with a bottle
of citri-strip. . .

I can tell if a body panel has been replaced
or just repaired regardless of the sticker.

Ah, I must have misunderstood your post.
No offense intended.
In late 95, all 6spds were "sport models"
Er, the dealer literature says the the "sport"
with the fancy suspension, etc. was an option
that you could get for either the automatic or
the 6spd. Of course, my literature could be wrong.
