I straddle the fence on customization. If that is your thing, more power to you. If you are going to customize something to make it more personal, understand that you destroy the integrity of the original design, and erase how a car was intended to be.

If you had an original historic document like the Bill of Rights, you wouldn't take a pair of scissors to the edge to make it fit into a frame.
Perhaps you're right.
