I say no. It's not going to shine like that. I've loved that picture ever since I first saw it. But I think it would not look no where near that good unless painted.

I think silver looks great. Just don't overdo it with whatever color you chose, Like making a lot of other things to match it. Too much isn't flattering at all.

Hard to say depends on quality, color, size, and placement... The best way is to get estaments..

I am a +1 on the grabber blue on the black or the lime green. The matte black stripes look good, but everyone has them. If you want it to stand out go that route.

I shall argue for Orange stripes.... I went back and forth between doing green or orange before I pulled the trigger. I could not be happier.

Agreed! Too many "generic" Mustangs out there. No hate though. Get some stripes that stand out! GREEN OR GRABBER BLUE!

Thanks guys, glad you like 'em. Worked hard on them. Any way, blue, green, yellow, purple and orange will all set you apart. I think the green would look sick. Might be my next color once im done with these vinyls.

Naw Black you should do a different color if you choose to, I say trend setters always stand out. Do a color nobody has ever thought about.

Thanks man! Really means a lot. Means even more coming from some one who has a car as sick as yours. As for the whole Halloween thing, it's my fav holiday so it probably influenced my decicion quite a bit =).

As for being a "trend setter" it's really hard to do something that has not been done before. Takes a lot of ideas, experiments, custom work and plenty of research. Not to mention messed up mustang parts. I'm always looking for new ideas. Any suggestions anyone? how do you think the black/orange work with a gts4 hood?

All these pics look cool as hell man. Though I think you car would look sick without the machined lip on the rims. Black it out and watch the rest POP. Still, it's an awesome ride bro.

I think the inverse of this would look awesome too. Black car/silver stripe(s)/red corners.

You gotta post them pics up when you do it.

So back on topic. Some bright yellow stripes will stand out quite nice, and I havent seen anyone do it yet. So maybe go that route?
