I have the opportunity for having my car professionally painted for free. I've checked on the person and he's completely reliable. Won't be able to do any crazy effects, but will be able to repaint my whole car. It is currently pearl white, and I was being talked into haveing a Eleanor - stlye paint job on my 1995. I've tried to look up pictures for my year and that paint, but can't find anything. Any suggestions on what I should do. Also was debating on re-doing my white and putting a thick red stripe down the middle

My good friend's grand father has been painting cars/houses/projects his whole life, and has a full painting garage where he currently lives with all the tools necessary and my bud said he would make that a birthday gift for me. I've had a conversation with the both of them about it, and they say they can't wait, just waiting to decide on what I would want to do and set up a date

I personally don't like sn-95's with stripes. I don't think it compliments the body style like on newer models, but do as you like. And another non-opinionated statement is that bright Atlantic blue is badass and should be the first choice haha. The pearl white is a nice color though.

For a 95, the paint on it is still in real good shape. No rust, no fading, just some small spots starting to chip away. I was thinking about buying a cowl hood from eBay too before I paint my car. And just for a test run, I tried seeing which stripe style looks the best on forza 4, cause they have a 1995 cobra r, and u can get the stock ford body on it. I didn't like the 2 side by side stripes, but the 1 thick down the center and the 2 very thin off to either side looks to best, to me

Complete color changes are an enormous pain in the ass, and to do it correctly it requires pulling the engine etc.. Don't know how determined you are to make it look show quality but if you don't care about the engine bay, door jams and so on I'd go for it.

Yeah, I was thinking how much of a pain it really would be, that's why I was leaning more toward just redoing the white, and maybe do like a 2012 boss stripe down the sides or the stripe down the middle
