probably not, the reason it that they can be taken off---would have been installed AFTER the paint-and-tunnel bake was done.~

they were painted? are they out of sheetmetal? is this important? is this car going into the museum?....every special car that I've had was mercilessly destroyed by a thoughtless driver in a rented car~....you cannot make things so precious that can be taken away in an instant~
