Default Summer Mod Plan!

I've had my black '13 V6 Premium for a few months. Intake & exhaust were installed a few months ago, so now it's on to the exterior!

The Plan
Roush High Flow Upper Grille
18" Gloss Black AMR Wheels
Grabber Blue OTT Stripe

Some might think the stripe is too much, but I like the contrast. I saw this GT online and really liked the look. I plan on only striping the hood, roof and trunk. Keep the all black look from front/behind rather than have the blue stripe all the way down to the front bumper, decklid and rear bumper. Plus my first Stang was GB so it's a bit of a homage to that. My premium chrome wheels are for sale, as well as the PP corralled grille. I'll post pics as mods are installed!

OP,

Looking Good! I'm loving the Black and Grabber contrast it really makes the car pop along with you Fog Light set up. I think a set of Gloss Black AMR Wheel and Tire Kit would look right at home on your Stang as well!

Here's the closest to your setup I could find to get you a better idea of how they would look on your car

Basically this, but with a brighter stripe and larger gap. Courtesy of the Ford Mustang Customizer (with a little MS Paint lol)

There seems to be some misreading going on here. The OP said that's not his car... he said he saw that GT online...

Anyway, that's my friend Randy's GT (it's UPR-equipped). If you have any specific questions for him, let me know and I'll put you in contact with him.

Thanks! I wouldn't mind having blue stitched leather

Roush grille is up next as soon as I save up a little $.

I'm also thinking of replacing the fender ponies with gloss black 3.7 emblems and painting the dot to match the stripes. Give it a little touch of blue on the sides.

I really like the black/grabber blue color combo! Looks great together. The only thing that I would do is also stripe the front bumper. It looks kind of funny in the mustang customizer without the stripe going down the front. Just my .02. Looking forward to the finished product.

I'm kind of on the fence about that. Factory SS stripe on my '10 stopped at the hood. Can always put it on bumper to bumper and remove a section if I'm not digging it.

So I looked at some more '12 vs. '13 mustangs with stripes. The '10-'12 body style looks good when stopping at the end of the hood. I think this is because there is no painted arch over the grill. I think because you have the '13 it would look good if you stripe over the painted arch in the grill. That looks to me like a better stopping point than the end of the hood. I don't think that the bumper itself needs to be done. In any case, the colors are great and it is just personal preference for what you like.

Maybe I mis-spoke. I meant I would stripe the arch as well, just not down where the license plate is. It's an extra 3 inches or so of stripe-able space "on top" after the hood gap. Sorry for the confusion. Not sure if the stripe on the Customizer can hit that arch, but the stripe kit I'm ordering has a small piece for there. Plus MD requires a front plate so 80% would be covered if I put a piece there.

TL DR: Just like the pic in post # 1 except for license plate area.

*Quick update: Buying a new house so funds are limited at the moment. Hope to pick up the Roush grille soon!

I saw a factory-striped model on the road the other day. Stripe does not extend onto the bumper arch.

Click the image to open in full size.

It does seem a little "off" not having it extend another couple inches.

What's the general opinion of fender stripes? My clueless neighbor scratched my fender probably while juggling her kid/keys. Buffed out a little with ScratchX, but the light hits it right and they show. B!tch. Rather than OTT stripes, maybe GB or darker fender stripes?

Like the shade of blue AM offers. http://m.americanmuscle.com/blue-hash-stripes-0512.html

Plus they're cheap enough to try and trash if I don't like em.

Edit: Nvmd. Scratches are farther back than I remembered. Hash marks wouldn't work. Guess I'll just take a polisher to em and hope for the best. They're pretty light.
