Opinions wanted

I want to put stripes on my 05. it's performance white, with gold rocker stripes- the rocker stripes are trimmed in black.... So I'd say they are about 65% gold, 35% black. My conundrum in that I can't decide whether to go with the double stripes in gold, or black. I like the contrast of the black so I think I'm leaning that way. I'm planning on redoing the interior in black and tan leather (tan cloth right now) so that's another factor pushing me towards the black. Thoughts?

Personally I'd say get gold stripes outlined with black to match the rockers

Your car looks great- definitely leaning towards the black

Thanks for all the input! I think I'm gonna go black. I've got to get a ding above the window fixed (long story, but I caught some@$$h()!e in the act trying to break into my car with a brick- he only got one smack in before I chased him- good thing for him I didn't catch him.... But anyway figured I'd kill 2 birds with one rock, and get the ding fixed and the stripes put on at the same time. Next order of business is to order my stripes and decide on a body shop.

Thanks!!
I love the simplicity of the black and white .. just looks really sharp!! I just added the painted white louvers and I absolutely love what they did to my pony If you go with black, I wouldn't do black all the way down the bumper - thats a personal preference on my part, I just think stopping at the front of the hood and at the black breaks the white up enough, but adds style and class .. hihi .. I KNOW its going to look awesome when you do get your stripes.

Go black, just make sure there 9-12 inches thick. So sick of seeing mustangs with thin stripes and making the car look ricey and trashy

Are there options other than just stripes. Trying to be creative and unique. But not much coming up in the mind right now...

You can do one big racing stripe down the middle (22-28 inches) and have small pin stripes on each side like the gt500 look, otherwise there are the boss side stripes but I think that's going too make a v6 look silly

+1. That's what I'm having done. I'm not a big fan of the dual stripes
