I know what you mean about the difference in the depth and paint finish. When I had my car done, they added two coats of clear over the entire panel which makes a huged difference. I also added the side stripes and agonize over what to put on them, if anything. I was going to do "Mustang GT", but as you pointed out the GT badging is already on the side of the car, plus I had some custom decals made to go on my hood scoop that had the GT on them. I thought that would be a bit of overkill. I was going to have a local vinyl shop make me the word Mustang using the original 1960's font and put that in the wide center stripe on the side (in the fender area), but in the end decided to just leave the stripes plain. After looking at the car for a while, I thought anything more would push it over the top. I'm over the hill and don't want to be over the top too. I've got pictures of the side stripes in my gallery which you might find helpful.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.
