Your car. It's about what you want.

But, since you asked, I'm for all one color. Keep the stock chrome.
No stripes, flames or such.
Lots of prep. Clean and simple.
A quality finish.
JMHO.

I'm not a big graphics guy either, but to each his own...

Thanks for replying back I'm still up in the air about plain or not Just want something a little different
Cruisin' the Coast 2013 was recently completed here. 8 days and over 7000 registered cars. One of the cars at the Edgewater Mall "show" that got the most jaw dropping looks was a resto 71 (I believe) Mustang.

Solid Black. Almost flawless. So slick my daughter could pull her blonde hair away from her head and see a strand of her hair in the refelction.

The finest paint finish I have ever seen. (I'm 61).

My point is prep and finish quality of your paint is more important than anything.

You can and will draw a crowd with a solid color.....done right.

Whatever you decide, post it here with pics. We love pictures!
