Thoughts and opinions needed

Ok...I got the sidescoops in yesterday, here's some pics of them on the car. I can't decide whether to paint them black, white, satin black, etc.

So...let's poll it out.

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

At first I say go all white...but it is an intriguing thought to go with black hood and side scoops and a black spoiler....maybe with a different spoiler kind of like a mach 1 or steeda instead of the one you have now.

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

I have an 01+ spoiler on the back porch (same as mach 1).

Also, it looks a little different in person than in the pics, not much depth in the pics.

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

3 years ago I would have said stick with the black, I had a similair idea to do it to my car but white if anyone remembers my ugly *** side/hood scoops.

Now though, ALL BLACK, ie paint your car.

But thats cause Im biased against white cars.

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

i think you probly could pull off the black and white if you kept what you have black, plus spoiler, tint windows, and maybe some kind of striping along the side...but otherwise i'd say go all white.

What do you mean by the spoiler mod? It's already moved back 2.5 inches...lol.

And I've also thrown around the idea of doing some sort of stripe like the new CS has that starts white and fades into black into the sidescoops.

O yeh, and windows are gonna be tinted here soon....again.

I will admit...

If you did that fade on the side correctly, and also did on the hood... It would kick some serious ****ing ***.

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

just looks really off

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

just a suggestion, but if you were to paint the spoiler and side scoops black along with the hood scoop already being black, and then going with a set of black deep dish bullit wheels instead of the chrome FR500's...

I like the 2 tone, but from a distance it could look like a void, but I like my black scoop.

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

i also agree that that ps looks pretty good...with windows and maybe roush stripes...or just the same thing on the hood, i think it'd look sharp

you just have to make it more than just pieces that get painted...so it doesn't look like you're getting parts off a black car

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

OOOOHH, just from the angle of the pic I saw it looked like the spoiler was int he stock position.. I like the fade, it's different and not to extravagent. I'd say keep em black if you are going to do the fade.

Second that!

Man that looks horrible black. Personally I think side scoops and hood scoop would look better without them on at all, and the holes smoothed over for a clean look.

All I got to say is if you leave it black you might as well go buy yourself a box of this:

Rice is bad.

Maybe if you thinned the line down as it went towards the front it would look a little better. I do like the fade though.

Re: Thoughts and opinions needed

Man, have fund w/your car. You got 2 sides of people to deal with. People concerned about "tarnishing" the OEM mustang look & people who want to mix it up a bit. I can tell which side people are on just by their post. Art is a beautiful thing, dont let them stifle your creativity. Having said that, no jap lettering please!

Yes, because every ricemobile has black hoodscoops and sidescoops.

Keep the opinions going guys, I've made up my mind already, just still curious what ppl think.
