Stripe Ideas for Sterling Grey/Acc Pack #5?

Ladies and Gents,

My fully-loaded sterling grey '11 GT should be arriving Monday or Tuesday. I've got the glass roof and accessory pack #5 on it. I've been debating what I'd like to do, if anything for accenting the car with some sort of striping.

I've been thinking black or silver lemans stripes, probably of the narrower variety to fit within the width of the hood scoop... any thoughts? Does anyone have pictures of a sterling grey coupe with any sort of striping?

Any outside-the-box ideas are welcome, too.

And of course, if I'm able to get pics once the car arrives, I'll post those, too.

I'd say go Matte Black or Silver. Not too out there but gives it an aggressive look. I don't think there are too many colors you can get away with on Sterling Gray. First pic is the Silver, and second is the Black.

My Gray 2010 GT has a metal roof and acc pack 4 on it. I've been toying w/ stripes. IMHO go w/ black. Kinda understated but sends the right message. I think the address for Ford's accesories is fordvehicles.com/accessories, you can actually build a Mustang with the stripes. That will give you an idea at least...

I saw a Shelby on the Truck going to who knows where that was Sterling Gray with the Colorado Red Stripes on it and it looked Awesome, so I say Red.

I personally like the black stripes, as it gives it a more aggressive look. If you are going for a more classy look, I'd suggest silver. I think any reds or blues or even white would be a little overpowering.

I have been toying with the idea of blue.....


Here is an outside the box option for you (minus roof part obviously)....that i have also been considering. (in black matt)


There is also a member here who put a set of these in white on a sterling gray (boss style).
