What Accent Color To Go With SGM ?

I've had my Sterling Gray Metallic GT for a while now and so far I just have flat black pieces and wheels. I also have a handful of tinted pieces too. I have the red lettering in the brembo logo on the calipers from the factory and the red "dot" in my black 5.0 emblems on the sides. That really is it. SGM, black, and tiny amounts of the red. The red could easily be painted over with any other color. I am just trying to decide on what goes well with SGM. Sometimes, it can look more brownish or even a greenish hue in certain light situations. Some friends have mentioned, more black, more red, orange, or lime green as possible accent colors. What do you guys think? And just to be clear, i'm not talking about just the red dot and brembo lettering to be changed, i'm talking about other things too like the entire caliper, coil covers, engine covers, etc. Just trying to get a theme going with my car.

I have a SGM and was thinking of doing white stripes. Sounds terrible, but I'm so curious.

I do like the Roush grill.

Bronze would accentuate the color in a subtle way I believe.

You could play with the Mustang Customizer to get a general idea of what different accent colors would look like.

Yes. I think Matthew Stafford has one just like that.

Actually, I think that sounds unusually hot if it's the right shade of white . The right silver would look good with it too.

i think u should mix metallic blue into the car. ex. brakes, coil over packs, hood vents. i also think u should peel off the plastidip and leave the wheels stock because they look good with sgm and metallic blue brembos.

My honest opinion is that black wheels and trim are way past overdone. Silver or satin aluminum on the wheels and the hood vents would be cool.
