To guard or not to guard?

Hey all, long time reader first time post!

I am thinking about placing my order for a mustang and just need a quick confirmation on colours.

I am thinking of going guard but am unsure if the guard is a metallic paint (like what you see on the Jaguar XF) or if it's flat paint?

Looking to order this weekend so any help would be really great!

Better move FAST as it's no longer available for 2017. Same with Competition Orange. Those with 15 & 16 will have RARE colors

Order 11/2 * Dora 11/6 * Vin 11/17 * Window Sticker 12/3 * Blend 12/8 * ETA 12/26 * Dealer 12/22 * Delivered 12/28/15

2016 I4 2.3L EcoBoost *Competition Orange * Group 201A * 6-Speed Auto * Security Package * Wheel & Stripe Package * Spare Tire * Park Assist

Why is this the case? Ford killed the Windveil Blue and Legend Lime colors on the fifth generation car and they were really nice and popular colors. Why introduce a new generation in 2015 and then nix two of the best colors not even two years later? I admit that I don't see guards very much on the road but competition orange seems popular and sought after.

Nice! Post some pics when you get it. Green (or greenish colors) on saddle is one of those color combinations that defies trendiness. It tends to stay in style throughout the eras. Apparently Ford doesn't agree with me however! Haha!

Is Ford adding any new colors in 2017 to replace the ones going out?
