Candy Red and Grey?

Hey, so my cars almost here few more weeks to go. I was thinking to be a bit different than all the other mustang owners that live near me and go grey stripes (havent decided on dark or light grey). Dont really want to do a red/black color combo, everyone does it here. I was wondering what you guys thought? Im probably going to do an offset stripe but thick not skinny like the European cars. Im hoping somewhere, someone has a grey stripe on their candy red, as ive searched for hours on google with no luck -.-

Also does anyone know FRPP makes a CAI for the v6, i cant find it on any suppliers website?

Thanks, any insight/pictures/advice would be appreciated

Go to Ford On the lower right hand corner there is a Mustang Customizer, the Red Candy is pretty close to the actual color so just build the car and add gray stripes. They don't have the offset 1's but you will get the picture.
I was actually thinking of doing the opposite, Red Candy on my SGM.

I kind of had the same thought, but I was also thinking about chrome stripes...I don't think black would pop...

One vote for the grey stripes here. I really like that colour combo. There's a Sterling Grey GT with red stripes in my area that I think looks really good.

I entertained a while back dark grey stripes on torch red. I figured the grey would match the rims. Since then I've kinda rethought getting stripes though.

If you are getting the performance package, the grey stripes will match the rims.

I too was all set to get some stripes (obscure Johnny Cash reference...lol), but I'm rethinking it now, and probably won't do it.

I do like the hood spears, and am thinking about going with them instead. Red Candy, GHIG, and Grabber Blue are the three colors that I think need a little something to break up those strong solid colors.

Thanks for all the replies. I kind of think I should get the stripe colour chosen before thinking about what colour my rims should be. Also what do you think about the stripe going over the spoiler? I plan on getting a gt500 spoiler before the new year.
I was also kind of thinking getting a faded horse on the side as striping probably if I don't get the stripe only, but if I get hood spears (which are growing on me the more I hear about them)
