Damn big garage, I am wondering if you're hiding a ford Gt from us!!!!!!!!!!!!! Show it!!!!!


Don't re paint the factory color into something else. Most car collectors, seem to hate that. Me, being one of them.

If you're closed mind on getting different color- I don't know. If you got a lot of money to spend. I'd just black it out, including window/wheels.
Or just go full Eleanor color (I think these color is nice with the side exhausts.)

Midnight blue is a beautiful blue color, check it out (from this thread here).



Also, sonic blue looks great.

If you're ever planning to resell it, keep it factory. You'll have more buyers. That being said you can get someone to buy it, no matter what color it is. In my opinion do it up! If you like the blue, do it ! I personally would go with the blue too, if you didn't murder it out.

I mean [cosmetically] that car has already been quite modified. From the hood, headlights, side skirts, and bumper stick-ons, why not just go all out?

I'd go darker. You'll end up looking like a infinity g35 with this color

I second that. Comes out cheaper since they don't have to paint under the hood or in the door jambs.

It'll look terrible if you repaint it without removing the engine and doing all of the nooks and crannies with the new color too. If you're just going to change the color of the car and not do the seams or engine bay, it'll look bad.

I am keeping it stock because I already have black wheels coming for it. Not a fan of blue mustang and black wheels. I'm I'm college now but after I get out and start an actual.career ima do it like an eleanor lol. I painted my 02 I have right now sonic blue. It was black. Did jams and everything but engine bay. Have a place down in MS that does a good.job for cheap. Only 1k with a 5 year warranty.
