Good evening everyone!! I have been seeing a lot of 5.0 stangs with the strips!! I wasn't crazy about them at first, but the more I see them the more I like them. So I'm wanting to strip mine which is a 2012 5.0 premium. Black on Black. I'm thinking about going with a red strip.also maybe a silver or a matte black! Any ideas from others , I'm open !

My opinion are flat black!! They look nice and not over the top like red would. My 2 cents!

Maybe some on ME could do some photoshopping on your ride so you can get some ideas.

Can you get caliper covers and maybe some suspension prices that peek out from te bottom to match?
FRPP does the blue, eibach does the red. A matching stripe with matching brake and susp colors would be awesome

That's the way I feel!!!! I've gone black on black for almost a year, I think if I go with a red strip with red brake caliper covers , blacked out lights and rim , it would look fantastic!!

Yup you need a little something to really set it off otherwise your just another blacked out GT. thats why im leaning more towards the silver, havent seen anyone go that route often.

Silver would look good also!! I think silver, red matte black and maybe blue would look good!! Buying think I'm going to go with red strips, red break covers , and alittle red on wheels ... And maybe the the red 5.0 badges on the side!! Black with just alittle red to stand it out!

That sounds like it would look awesome. I'm a little jealous of black now. I have white, so it already has black accents (heat extractors and taillight surround). I can't do a third color accent. Post some pics when you're done!
