What would you think of this?

Hey all well I've been thinking lately that I want to change the look of my mustangs apperance - I was thinking about getting a matte black mach 1 hood decal ( minus it saying mach 1 ) and then getting the saleen rocker stripes in silver ( Just the square things not the part that says saleen ) How do you think that would look...? I don't know honestly I think I'm just going to go with the matte black hood decal because my car is just a v6 not a saleen... heh... but lemme know your take on it.

Yah definitely keep the color the same. I've seen the saleen bars on non saleen cars. It does look ok imo, just as long as "saleen" isn't spread across the rocker panel.

Black looks good on any color car so that's a safe choice...what color is your car?

My 00 stang is black - thus wanting the Matte black for the hood. and the silver saleen bars for the rocker. The more I think about it the sexier it becomes to me. lol

Re: What would you think of this?

I don't know man...I can see what you're saying...you want the saleen bars to be pronounced, so silver would be the best color on black. The black hood stripe would be barely noticeable until up close, but would still seem out of place with the silver bars.

This Mach has the silver hood stripe and side stripes...I think it looks good because it flows from the front to the side of the car...a pair of silver "mustang" inserts in the rear bumper would finish it off.



Here's the Mach 1 stripe in matte black on a black Mach 1. You could do the saleen stripe in matte black, but it'd be hard to see from a distance.



That's just my 2 cents man, it's your car...most of us like the accents' color to match, but matte black and silver wouldn't look horrible on a black car.
