Default Teaser Pic: Silver Flames on My 2010 - More Pics to Come

Here's a teaser shot of the silver flames I had painted on my 2010. I ripped the stripes off and went a completely different route. I was in Thailand for work so I dropped her off at a shop and had them work on it while I was gone. I only have indoor pics right now and they do the job no justice. Once I get some daylight shots I'll post more. I had them rip the stripes off, paint the flames on, repaint my side skirts, rear bumper, front grille (had to get a new grille), fog light housing, rear decklid panel, rear decklid panel logo..... A complete change. I had them use the same color silver they painted the flames with so everything would match. Here's a teaser shot:

Thanks man.... Well, I did like what I had going on before, but I wanted something truly unique. I've always liked flames on cars, but ONLY if done the right way. I've never liked them too flashy either. Given the somewhat "retro" look of the newer Mustangs I thought flames would be a good way to give it a kind of old school muscle car look. It was risky though! I'm glad it turned out looking good. Now I'm just praying for some sunlight so I can get some good pictures of how sweet this paint job looks.

i may have missed this... but why not a GT? you obviously have money to spend on the car and appear to have spent quite a bit on this one.

WOW

From the teaser, that will be a very unique car. It took big ones to make a change like that, but you seem to be on the leading edge of customizing anyway...

Need some outdoor, top down pics.

I sure did! For those of you who have been to that part of the world, maybe this phrase will spark a memory...... "You want Boom-Boom?"

I bought this car because I wanted to buy a car off the lot and I liked the front of the V6 better. It was also the only convertible they had on the lot. Sort of an impulse buy I guess, but I knew I could customize it more if I paid a little less. That said, I still paid a lot because you tack on an extra 5 Grande for the convertible alone.

Yeah, I was nervous about it. I wanted to make sure the painter's image of what I wanted was the same as the image I had in my head. Luckily, it turned out great and I don't have to kill myself now.

Thanks! You know what I did? I looked up every really crappy picture of Mustangs with flames on the internet and printed them out. I took them to the painter and told him "I don't want it to look like any of these".

Flames can look badass or just like plain old cheesy crap. It's almost like there's no middle of the road with them, so that's something I also conveyed to him.

I've seen his work before and he wouldn't spray crappy flames because his name is all over it.

Thanks man. The paint they used is pretty cool. It looks different depending on the angle/lighting. In darkness they almost look like a charcoal color, which makes it kinda look like smoke. In sunlight it looks really silver and looks like flames. It definitely looks the best in light. It's supposed to be nice this weekend, hopefully sooner, so I can take some worthy shots.
