Welcome to the forums, i think what your saying is a 2 tone paint job kind of like the zr1 where the body is red but from the bottom of the windows up is black? Its a cool looking paint job but i always felt it looked better on camaros and vettes than mustangs. Sticking with that idea, if you bring the line down further so that if follows the crease on your body styles, i think that look is much better for a mustang.

I don't have any pics of the 94 - 98 style done like this, but I saw one once on the cover of a magazine and it looked great. Just be careful when you start talking to shops about doing it though. If you take shortcuts it will look horrible....i.e. remove trim / moulding, etc.
