Well, I finally got the GT back from the paint shop. I've created an animal:happyhapp
I added a CDC classic chin spoiler, a xenon hood scoop, and CDC rear window louvers. If you look closely at the second picture, you can see the black panel I had painted on the hood, right off a '69 Mach 1. I came in 1-1/2" from the edge of the hood crease, added a 1/4" stripe, 1/4" space, the black for the remainder. They clear coated the entire hood afterwards with two coats of clear. You can't even feel the striping. :laughlitt Then they installed the scoop over the finished hood. I also had them remove and paint the rocker panels, rear spoiler, and the lower lip of the rear bumper cover black, then clearcoat the entire panel. I'ts very subtle, but has the effect of thinning out the car, if you know what I mean. They also painted the chin spoiler and installed it. I did the rear window louvers myself. I'm impressed, no rattles or squeaks. The only problem I had was fitting the outboard clips between the glass and the body. I had to file them down a hair to get them to fit.
They were supposed to put some stripes on the side of the car, just under the scallop, but they didn't get the right one in, and we decided to hold off.
All in all, it was worth the wait. Total cost for paint and parts was about 1800 dollars. I promised my wife I'd wait for the K&N CAI. After all, she needs to get me something for Christmas!

Nice paint job! I wonder if you intend to pick up side louvers for the car to cover the quarter windows? I was all over the idea of getting rear louvers until I saw them here..... Are you totally happy with the look of the car with them? Perhaps I have been to use to seeing the new ones without it... I had two '69's and they looked GREAT with the rear louvers but again they did not have quarter windows.... I am still going Hmmmmmmmm on this one. I will look a gain in a few days!

Sure is a great color and stripe scheme!
