Black Super snake stripes.

Start from the grill, end at the end of the wing.
I personally don't like stripes going to the ground.

Can't go wrong with black or white Le Mans stripes. Simple, clean, and classic.

Would matte black, or gloss black look better on Red Candy? I looked on AM, I can't see much of a difference on the cars, but a big difference with the previews about the options

I have gloss black rims, so if I were to do stripes, they'd be gloss. But that's all about personal preference. They'd both look great and since it doesn't appear that you have any other black exterior parts (spoiler, rims, etc), you don't have to worry about mismatching matte and gloss.

I'm going to get black 5.0 badges (offered in either gloss or matte black) to replace the factory ones, and probably charcoal colored staggered AMR's, then the RTR black spoiler.

I prefer matte.
If u like matte wheels go matte.
If you like gloss wheels go gloss.
Don't ever mix gloss and matte.

Would charcoal wheels be classified as matte?

Ok, so charcoal would be fine with gloss black stripes.

Yes, but I think matte would look better with charcoal. IMO.
I think matte stripes always look best unless you have a black car and do red/blue stripes
Because they still are not glossy in finish.

If anyone can post pictures comparing matte black and gloss black on a dark red mustang, that would be great.

Yes. I was getting people's opinions on stripes, then going to compare them on google.

With charcoal, I'd say go matte stripes, and then do matte emblems too of course. Good thing is that charcoal rims are pretty versatile. Gloss or matte will do.

As for pictures, a simple Google search will show you everything you need to know.
