Sharp, sharp 90! Spitting image of mine, except yours looks damn near new. I have a ways to go still but she's getting there. We even have the same county package guards. Did you paint your hard top or is it one of the new abs batches? I have two of them, (fiberglass) in various states, ready for experimental fracture fixes.

Very nice! If I recall Beluga black was a pretty rare color for NAS. Question, I just bought my 1994 NAS 90 and it came with the factory side steps you have on but they were still in the box not installed. Not sure if you do much off roading with yours, but if you do have you noticed any material impact on ground clearance? I'm contemplating keeping mine off but it would be a bit easier to hop in the seat with them installed.

So sorry for not responding, but I didn't see your post. You've probably already figured this one out, hopefully not the hard way. But...Yes. I left them on once for some off-road opportunity that I couldn't pass up. It wasn't planned and I was too lazy to remove them. Dinged the crap out of them! If you're on any trail with light terrain or broken tracks, you'll be relatively fine, but you'll run the risk of denting, destroying, or ripping them off if you encounter any obstacles, even light obstacles. They are for mostly on road use. I like them, though and it keeps me from having to help the wife in, but if I'm planning anything rough, off they come.

I had those very same side steps that came with mine. I went through some Moguls while off roading and bent one side up flush to the sill. Yes good call to remove them prior to setting out...
