I like the stock look also with the black wind screen.... in my opinion, with any boat that has decent graphics, it's the shine and luster that makes it stand out... That showroom crisp look!!! And it's much better for resale..... Any modifications to the stock setup seems to really deter the resale value.... I think you have a nice boat from the pics..... pinstripes... removing them shouldn't be an issue as you state, they really don't show up being so small and I know the tend to peal up on the ends..... Good luck!!!!
