So what your saying is you want our opinion on some candy apple red stripes? I love the color, and I say do what makes you or your wife in this case happy. There are several other SGT owners that have painted their stipes a different color (andrewangle, jaspony) and they all look good. I'm sure your wifes will to. Let us know how it comes out if you decied to do it

 

Might have to change the radiator cover though or it will be all red

1. you do very nice paint work based on what I've seen, so it'll probably look good.

 

2. I wouldn't do it, but only because I don't care for red stripes on black much.

 

3. Would you leave the radiator cover as is or paint it black with red stripes as well?

 

That probably helps a ton eh?

Whatever blows your skirt up. I say do it. Black with red stripes is one of my favorites anyway. I wouldn't change the stripes on mine, but then I'm a fuddy duddy. LOL

You asked for an opinion, so here goes. The paint work looks really nice, but to me, it no longer has the souk of a Shelby GT. it looks like a Chip Foose mod car (I am no fan of Chip Foose design). Do whatever makes you and your wife happy, it's your car, but to me it just does not seem right. I am sure the candy apple red stripes will look fantastic, but as I said, it looses the soul of a Shelby GT. BTW, love the CS40 wheels!

I believe in 2 things:

 

1. Silver stripes on an SGT

2. Keeping the wife happy.

 

 

Your call, man! :hysterical:

When you say Knott's, are you talking the Fab Ford's in So Cal?

Yes knotts berry farm . didnt make it last year really looking forward to it

 

 

Was able to go to that show with my Dad years ago... by far my favorite car show ever. My parents have been back, but I haven't been in Ca during the show since. One day I'll make it back. When is it? I'll pass the info along to my family, maybe they'll be able to make it again this year.
