PS Pretty Please...

Ok... I'm pretty sure I know how this story's going to end but if someone feels so inclined could you move the black stripes from the mustang to my truck? I've been throwing this idea around for over a year now and I'm hoping to finally put the issue to rest (one way or the other) when I can see how it will really look. If you want to be really thorough the bedrails are now black since this is an old pic. THANKS!!!

the mustang sticker photoshopped onto your ranger would look good. however, if this were to ever become a reality, i hope you don't have the "302" part of the sticker included.

Poster Paint. They have it meant for easy removal, tape it off and paint it on your truck, ten bucks to find out exactly what it looks like! A form of low tech photo shop.

I've seen it done with painters tape before. Just to see what it would look like in person.

I think it would look cool.

It would look good with the black stripe there coming down from the Ranger emblem.

I think that would look sick if you painted the Ranger emblem black and left the letters chrome. Holy crap that would look amazing.

I tried it, couldnt get the emblem to look right so I left it alone.

I kinda messed up on the back part but you get the idea.

That would look pretty awesome.

I used to like the Boss Mustangs with stripes all the way up on the hood.

Honestly.. It doesn't look right with the grill and nerf bars being chrome.

Maybe if the wheels were a darker Matte type of finish.. break up the shine a bit?

Yeah, ever since before I got the truck I've been thinking about Mustang stripes down the sides and up and over (just as pictured) I got a price to do it but I just don't think I'm convinced that I'll love it. I want to tie my truck to the Mustang somehow since that's where the color came from but I'm just not loving that stripe... maybe I'll revisit the issue when there's more ground clearance?
