New stripes

So my stripes on the side have some wear and tear. Should I get then re-done, painted to match the car color, or a different color? I also might get stripes painted on the top.. Color and style suggestions?

I had the stripes on the side from them. The only thing is they don't look professional and I want them to be painted on. My friend can get me a 40% discount I believe totaling to 250 for the the sides and top which is pretty good

I prefer paint all the way. If you truly want paint, I defiantly would go paint. 250 is good. A quote for my rims to get a custom touch was 140 a rim. Make sure that paint job quality is good and worth it, like the other guy said... It permanent. I think that silver will go nice with stripes. What color stripes are you going with??

I was thinking about doing the cobra stripes. The center black and the outer blue. And on the sides maybe the bottom black and the upper smaller one blue. Or maybe all of them black. We'll see when the time comes. It should be next month

I think that would look good. All black I think would run nice with your color car though personally I like the black and silver look.

I agree. I have smoked taillights and I tinted the quarter markers and turn signals. Getting black rims in December and I should be solid! Thanks for your opinion

I also smoked my lights out all around, all lens though no tint. My 05 is legend lime green and everything slowly becoming black and green is looking real unique for living in Vegas. I've only seen 4-5 other mustangs my color in town. And mine was the only one with mods. I love the black look its clean. And thank you for your opinion also. Here's a few photos of my exterior mods.
I want to order a billet grille and fuel door soon. I was even thinking of painting the bolts on the fuel door the car color. It would definitely be unique. Good luck with your build

Looks great! I've got the coyote lights too. The billet grille would look nice. Check out the billet grille with hidden fog mounts. http://www.dgcustomauto.com/category.sc?categoryId=403 you need a gt bumper though but that's definitely what I'm going to do eventually. Good luck on your build too!
