I



























The reason I've been absent from the site lately is posted above. A 1998 Ford Mustang I picked up for payment on a job i did. Original plans for this was pull the interior and a few other parts and scrap it. But after looking at it and seeing the clean and solid condition of the car. The choice was made to build it. Plans are fix the crash damage (which has been started) add a v-8 (4.6 2v) and a 5 speed.

Still have a long way to go but it's getting there. Debating on just painting the front end or the whole car

white and black are the easiest to match

But if you have the paint out its only that much more work to do the rear 2/3 also

I vote Monstaliner the Mustang in white :) but you knew I would vote that way

I always think of white as a fleet vehicle. Black has its advantages for wraps....

My Ranger is black although it looks great when its clean as does any black vehicle. But the time it takes to get a black vehicle clean is endless. And after I got that old white 98 ranger from Jamman I fell in love with it. And the more I look at this white mustang the more I'm liking the white

Black is hard to hide micro scratches and white is hard to keep dirt n grime from contaminating the white. 

Maybe something in the middle? 
Navy grey, or silver? 

Go with your gut bud!! Just making suggestions. I love the grey that jeeps and toyos are using, but whatever you decide im sure it will look great!!

I've had cars and truck in every color in the rainbow and beyond. The only color that ever really looked decent when it got dirty was my 2003 Taurus. It was a kind of gold-ish brown. Dirt didn't seem to show up on that so bad.
