Most bad@$$ looking paint on a 1999 mustang

I have it currently painted red and I'm getting it painted on Friday. So I am in desperate need of help from people who know what they're talking about. I'm leaning toward a black or white but if the black is too much hassle maybe even a gray. Thank you!

Quick detailed? Is that like a spray or something you'd get at a auto store?

Awesome thank you. So it seems like you know more than I do so between white and black. What would be best? It's tan interior with chrome rims

I've been using the Lucas quick detailer. I have 2 bottles of the meguires too. But haven't used any yet.
Anything to get water spots off of windows?

you wont get an amazing paint job for cheap, factory quality is ok in terms of looks (not amazing by any means but qualify) and a color change for that will run you 3k or more. The sky is the limit though lol.

For a daily driver DO NOT go black. If you are going do do a full color change (engine, door jams etc) then dont go gray either (to bland). Consider something custom, or a newer OEM color like the new blue they have out etc.

Its generally always better to keep the original color though for many reasons.

Yeah the factory paint it had was just horrible it was peeling and losing color in the most random places from sun damage. It was ridiculous and yeah I was really considering black but finally decided white and I think it's amazing (for now at least)
