imo, anything but black on that color would look a little "funky"..

on my black car i'll be doing either silver or matching the "parchment" color

When in doubt it is always best to STRIPE! J/K

IMHO you color stang would look good with either black or silver stripes. The black will stand out...but the silver will give sort of a "ghost" look. Just my .02

stripes

Go ahead, stripe the girl!!!!! :eyepoppin I like the idea of going with the "ghost" stripes" for I have always found that concept appealing, so my 2 cents worth is go for a shade of silver for the stripes that is different than the silver of the car! I have a black GT vert and I am planning on striping my girl with crimson ghost stripes.

Go with black... But I may be biased. Next question is vinyl or painted. How much do you want to spend?

When I saw the Tungsten color, it looked like it had some purple in it. Maybe some light colored silver with a hint of purple pearl...like the SEMA concept car. Whatever you do...DON'T get red stripes...man was I asking for it from the local police :doh:

Beware, stripe it and you will never blend in again. Unless you are at a Shelby meet! :eyepoppin

Well you could always put the stripes on then take them off.. I've got a black GT and i'm debating putting silver double stripes, I think I'll do it then see how it looks then maybe take em off if i dont like them, i knw the owner of dealership so prolly could get it done for free if i didnt want them on after no charge.. idk

Ford dropped Dark Charcoal Gray for 2005 and only offered Mineral Gray :sterb:
And then they dropped that color for 2006.

I like Stripes...

Well, I prefer stripes. It think they look good on the 05/06...

The question is do you want them????

I would do a ghost color stripe a few shades off. Of course black would look great as well...

I have a Mineral Gray 05 with Shelby Stripes (top bumper to bumper and side stripes) painted in Med. Titanium. They aren't cheap.... $872.00. But that is the only way to go here in the Southwest. See pics in Members Gallery.

Mustangbaxter,That looks great!:thumbsup Did you follow up on the rear of the car or just the hood? I've opted for the blacked out 69''Mach look on my 06'.

I have a sonic Blue Roush with White stripes. If I were you, I would go with either white, gray or black stripes on your color. You may want to go with tape stripes so that if you truely don't like them you can remove them. Most sign companies can make them in any color you want. All you have to do is tell them how wide to make them and how much space between them and of course what color you want them. I would guess that you could have them made for about $300.00 to $400.00.
