New color with pictures and questions

Some of you may know my car WAS matte green, like the military green. And actually got a lot of thumbs up. But I feel like that car isn't me at all so I changed it to yellow. So Riley now


Okay so my question is, how much differences between stock v6 gear and ford racing 3.73? Been debating buy it or not. I mean, it's spending another 600ish dollars again. I want to make it worth

It's been asked many times...what's your driving habits or pattern? Do you do more city verses highway? Is MPG an issue?

Asking for driving experiences with a gear ratio is one thing to do, but it may not work with your driving. For me, a taller gear setup over 3:55 would not work, as I do quite a bit of highway driving as this Mustang is my daily driver. I run the 3:31 for that reason.

Agreed, but since I had bought a lot of things to my car which made me regret, so I need to think wisely lol

Good to see and hear others, including myself, have made purchases that we regret, or did not work out.

Curious, what purchase(s) did you make that you regret? For me, it was a rear window louver (recovered my money back though), and a roush hood scoop for my F150; traps water underneath it that sprays back at the windshield under highway speeds.

I like the yellow. I wish they made the screaming yellow like the 99-08 lineup. Then we got that weird metallic gold. I like the school bus yellow of the boss now

Yes. And unfortunately I dropped some gas on my green and it ruins that part of area my friend helped me PS it.

I like the green better but the yellow doesn't look bad. If I ever supercharged my car id get it done in army green like that with black 3.7 badges.

Everyone would try to race it thinkings it's just a v6 until they hear the supercharger whining away from them haha

I was thinking to buy a supercharger before, but I didn't. Because I don't need that much power lol

Thanks man. Then I think you should consider of plastic dip whole car. The military green was whole plastic dip, it doesnt last long. But it is cheap and you can DIY. Totally change the attitude of your car. If you don't like it, you can peel it off easily.

I love both the military green and the yellow. I actually had a gallon of flat green paint ready to put on my first car, but I never got around to it. Good to see someone do it right.

Haha Thanks bro. I think the green is really unique for a car. And it looks like matte grey at night, if you like dark grey, its the best of both world.

I like the them, they look perfect. But you really need to care for the bump if you have the splitter. This is my second RTR splitter, I crashed my first one.

Well done! I like both colors, but do favor the yellow. Saw a well kept new edge with the same color scheme the other day - good choice.

Thank you! Its Vinyl Wrap. The green one was Plati dip. Haha, I chose this 2012 Pony Pkg instead of 2011 GT. Maybe I think 305HP is enough for a 19 years old kid? The more power you have, the more trouble you got.
