That must have been a sight to see!   It is strange how big decisions at plants get made.  $400 a car is a considerable amount to think about. 

I miss California.  I like to get down the west coast every year or two if I can, but not this last year.

I pulled my rear seat to check the codes and found that they did not skimp on the adhesive.  It appears to me that more adhesive was added sometime later than when the car was built because of the differences in the material, application, and layering.  Is all that adhesive original?  Based on this discussion, I believe the code should be B 3, for blue interior in an X33.  I can kind of make that out, but probably not if I didn't have that expectation.  I doubt I can remove the adhesive without damaging the code, so I am inclined to leave it alone unless it can be removed without inflicting damage.  Any ideas on how to remove the adhesive without damaging the codes?

I agree B 3
FWIW The glue may not stick to the grease pencil. So it may come off VERY easy where it crosses over the grease pencil.

Be careful.  50 years old grease pencil marks are close to the consistency of chalk at this point.  You can wipe a lot of the grease marks off pretty easy.  The color does stay where it was drawn originally but the build up crayon can be removed without much abrasion.  Maybe better to leave it alone.

I appreciate another opinion that I am not the only one seeing a B 3 and only because that's what I want to see.  I am going to leave it alone, that's good enough for me.  Thanks for the responses.
