Haha no more butt cheek marks! (thank goodness) I can't leave without checking to make sure she's okay!

But I'm having hot pink rally stripes painted on

That sounds awesome. You'll have to show us some pics of Roxie when she gets out of surgery

Haha yeah it has been! And I think so there will be no hiding afterwards. Lol and yeah I had a custom ordered gear shift knob too. I'm gonna do the calipers and I'm thinking about head light splitters too. And out here it's costing me 750 euro. Not cheap but I bought vynil ones and I was nervous about messing them up plus the color wasn't spot on. This way I pay once an I'm good. And if thy mess it up thy redo it!

Re: Paint!

pretty good deal, ford dealership here wanted to charge me +1000 USD for my 'stang's boss style stripes.
just a tip of advice, you might want to paint the white/chrome/silver(the not black part) parts of your wheels pink, that would look pretty cool

Yeah in dollars it's about a grand. I was thinking about it but the problem is I need to make sure I have the same color for all.

There is your problem. A ford dealership. I went to a local paint shop. Just so happens the guy owns and loves boss mustangs as much as me. We did the 69 setup on mine for 1,000 and a few 10s over. Paint really is the way to go. Just don't wash it a lot. Or even hardly once you get it. Itll scratch

Re: Paint!

Hope you love the 'Stang. Pink stripes painted on will be hard to resell.

I saw a pink new edge yesterday. The car was totally bright pink, but not a shade I liked at all. I just need vinyl. I'm too indecisive to just have a stripe painted on.

Oh yeah I'm fully aware. But I love this car and have no problem hanging onto it. I used to live in Arizona and saw a "warriors in pink" mustang, and fell in love with it. Ever since then I've been dying to make my own.
The vinyl scares me, too easy to mess up, I'm worried about the paint underneath plus I don't wanna have to redo it every few years

Oh my god that looks amazing! The chin spoiler really finishes it. I really give you props for the pink stripes and picking a mustang. Girls always seem to look at muscle cars as "manly"...but id much rather see a girl in a stang than a fiat 500 or vw bug, putting the pink stripes on is an ultimate expression of personal style. I disagree with resale value, a girl on the market for a stang later will remember yours as "the one with the pink stripes" sometimes rare is good. You just need the right buyer. I was on the market before for an infiniti g35...the used ones with stick shift went for 10 percent more than auto.....hard to find!

Enjoy the car and lets hope the only *** prints in it from now on are yours in the seat from enjoying that awesome machine!

Awesome Ash! You did the perfect stripe style too, two wides ones front to tail. Makes me consider two matte black stripes on my car, but if I do, I need a spoiler first.

Thanks stig! I think the rarity of it too will help once or I go to resale too it's all about finishing the right buyer like you said! The chin spoiler on it makes it def! I was do happy when he said he went ahead and did it too!
