AmericanMuscle Graphics Silver GT500 Style Mustang Stripes - 10in (05-13) 26167 - Free Shipping!

I don't know if you'll find sterling grey. Silver would like pretty awesome on the black though.

Here is one that offers "slate metallic". Not sure if that's the same or not. You'd have to call and also see if they'd work for a 13.

Being an owner of a Race Red, I noticed how hard it is to take a pic of it... It always looks orangy or pinkish, it's rare to get that deep red look unless its taken with a DSLR camera or photoshop. In person, it's a whole other animal

Believe it or not, sterling grey was my 1st choice... I wanted something stealthy, but ended up with the red, I'm very happy I have the red now

I just did a search on eBay for 3m 1080 vinyl. I bought a roll that was 5ftx10ft that wasn't pre cut but ended up with plenty of extra. You should be fine with 5'x5'. I cut it into strips and used painters tape to measure the gap in the middle. Pretty easy if you take your time, it took me a full day with a friend to complete. Also this vinyl has some kind of air release channels built into it that u can't see but left me with no bubbles at all

Not sure if this link will work since I'm doing this from my phone.

3M 1080 Gloss Hot Rod Red Vinyl Car Wrap Decal Roll - 12ft x 5ft (60 sq/ft)

Hey just an update. I moved to upstate NY and te vinyl has started cracking and peeling off. I'm not sure if its from the cold or maybe the salt but I wouldn't recommend it for northern USA. This was after about two weeks here

Goo gone does miracles let it soak . Just saying mines never done that. And when I pull mine off it comes off in one piece . Crap happens though paint is just to expensive and I like changing at will

Ya I'm not mad about it. This just gives me an excuse to change her look again. I'm thinking matte black on black this time. I'm gonna give plastidip a try this time and see how that goes

Agreed. As for stripe color, I like the flat black on black.

Personally I love the bright green on that black but the flat black on black looks good too. If it were my car I personally would go with Magenta stripes. You aren't gonna see anyone else with that on a mustang lol

True but sure still looks good. If not that I'd try the green from the 700 HP Roush from sema or a really rich blood red painted stripe with some large flakes.

I think I like her better without stripes but I might add a matte super snake stripe to change it up

I agree with black there's no need for stripes unless its a solid matte black down the middle. I saw a black Shelby with one and I liked it. I'm not a stripe fan really. I had a white 07 v6 and it had a sparkly dark blue stripe it was ok but I eventually wanted a solid white car.
