I don't have a picture of it, but the Refire G2 mixed with a little orange (maybe Competition Orange, I can't remember) is a beautiful, unique, and muscular color.

How about the new S550 color, Guard? It's close to highland green in believe. Cool color and new enough not to be everywhere.

I think it was stock but saw a real different green on one at Mustang Week. Always like these on new edge:

Comp Orange
Yellow
Matte Gun Metal
Matte Black
Brushed Pewter wrap
DIB

What about mineral gray. They didn't make many mustangs in that color and it looks awesome. Or a matte burnt orange.

Painting my mach 1

Sonic blue with a little flake tossed in would be sexy.... Or if you can find the paint code that Ford Liquid blue they used for the presenting of the GT and GT350 would be awesome as well.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I'd like to see silver, like ingot silver metallic from the 2015+, or satin silver from our body style. I think they would look great with the factory decal setup and the shaker.

Yeah, and its pretty far from silver. Its a real dark grey metallic. Dark Shadow Grey is what they call it. It's beautiful if done right because the metallic makes it deep in the sun. The Mach 1 decals don't show up as well with it though. My preference is that they are easily visible.

How about grabber blue? That color would look good on a Mach. The decals would pop. Also its a lot diff shade than the Azure blue

It costs 1.5k for the paint alone and if you have to get one part repainted it would be a different color than the rest of the car

A deep maroon is always nice. Just don't select a brownish maroon tint.
