If I wanted to 'black out' the entire exterior of my 2010 GT Premium, I'd definitely take the vinyl route. $1,500 isn't bad at all considering I'd be changing roughly 90% of the car's exterior. For $1,500 I could also buy a pretty good set of rims and tires as well to match (the other 9% or so).

I think this just boils down to how much money one is willing to spend. Quality automotive products and services are by no means 'cheap' to the majority of us out here buying $5,000-$40,000 Mustangs. I have accepted that fact, and am willing to work long and hard to pay for nothing but the best on my toys.

If I had 2010 Gt premium I wouldn't change a thing. BUT I have a 2000 basic gt so I wouldn't mind going the cheap way. I already spray painted it comp orange before.

+1 ... I plastidipped the big silver gas cap-looking-thing on the trunk lid then used glossifier to add a touch of shine (but left the black-backed emblem in the center as-is.) It looks great - blew my brothers mind when I told him I did it myself. Also plastidipped the small flat plastic panel on the back that is behind the license plate.

I toyed with doing my wheels but if I do that I want to only part of them black and the masking required to get a clean line is more work than I'm willing to do at the moment.
