Looks AWESOME!!!

That settles it, this is the color for my Pro-Challenge Mustang.  :bacon:

I'm also going to add a pair of LeMans stripes down the center.  Do you think white or black stripes would look better?

I think black looks better. I was/am considering some black fender stripes like the Camaro/Corvettes have.

I thought about painting the taillights orange too, but like the satin black..kind of a throwback to the big block GM muscle cars. A 5.7 is a big block compared to a 1.3 right? :)

Thanks, I was leaning towards black and Orange anyway.  Should look good with basic black wheels too.
I hope I can find some light and fairly cheap 15x8 alloys for it, but could always go with steel stock car style wheels as well.
