maybe you could like do black outlines? or something but leave the inside white? if that makes sense? But if it was me I would go with silver and get a billet grill like the shelby gts, it looks really clean and slick

Owning a White Stang and seeing how awesome the black ones looked with the matte black stripes, I too wondered how this would look.....All I can say is DAMN[&o]LOL it doesnt look as good as I hoped it would.

+1 go for it and be admired by your peers here on Mustangforums!! A light gray would likely look good on it as well.. And if you like the ghost look of barely visible then I'm sure you'll be pleased with a different shade of white (wether it is more white or a yellow-white or gray-white) Good Look! letsee some pics!

I think i might do it just to do something different and if i dont like it then they will come off!!
I was thinking silver too or maybe a pearl white for a little bit darker white!!

Not to get too technical and scientific, but other than just a matter of opinion, one of the primary reasons that flat black looks so amazing with black is because the very nature of the color Black absorbs all the light (heat) which is why black cars get so hot in comparison with light colors, while white reflects light. If you look into a black car with nice clear coat , you can see your reflection much better than if you were to look into a white car. So with the absorption of the light in the black, the contrast between flat and gloss becomes extremely evident at some angles and more ghosted at other angles.

With white I think you will experience that there will not be much distinction due to all the reflection of light and lesser variation between the clear coat and flat portion of the stripes. You may be able to pull it off "better" if you did flat white with a pearl or metallic flake in it that would emphasize the difference in the two different paints and create a clearly distinguishable difference that would still be subtle. Of course you could also just go with a white that is a different shade of white. Hope that helps. Let us know what you decide and post some pics when you do!!

if you want my honest opinion, i do admire youre creative thinking, but i think matte white stripes would look like your car is missing clear coat where the stripes would be...[&:]

I'm very experienced in photoshoping and actually here's the final version. It would be a good idea to trust the accuracy of this pic. Here you go:

Looks good. Not sure if it will ever POP like the Matte black. I do remember a 67 camaro back in highscool that had light blue striping and it looked really sweet. Plus if it looks good on the pic above it is going to look great on the car. I think you should go with it and post some pics. Plus add some matching rocker stripes or maybe a Boss style side stripe for a little extra POP.

Another thing may be cool is stripes that fade as they go to the back with matching fading rocker or side striping.

Also any possibility of taking a photo from a ladder to get a look from above the hood with the roof and trunk. Think it would be easier to see the real effects.

Try this stripe painting site. I am a big fan of the Silver stripes on the white car. Subtle and sexy.

I think Pearl on white would look good if you are going for the "ghost" look.
Yeah this thread is like 4 years old, makes you wonder if those posting still have their stangs?
