Well, I've finshed adding all the Christmas Presents to the Shelby that Santa gave me, I'm now having custom stripes painted on the car and got rid of the vinyl stripes. I've had ghost flames and tear-outs placed on the stripes. I stopped by the shop today and took a few pictures. Hope you all enjoy them.

They are really doing a nice job, the flames will almost disappear when they shoot the clear on.

It was sunny here to so I took a few more pictures after I washed it. I also installed the VMP 2.59 pulley, 100 MM idler and a tune by Justin. It's like a new car, it pulls hard with about 10 lbs of boost. I was very pleased.

Looks really nice.
I plan on just having some plain ones down evntually. I cant stand the way the stock stripes go around the license plate area in the back..
I will eventually fix that, like you did.

Your's turned out very nice..

I had my stripes painted on and they look so much better. Changed how they went through the license plate area as well. Now they go straight through instead of around. The painter made them smooth with the paint instead of a lip.

Thanks Guys, I'mbreally pleased with the results. I think said they put five coats of clear on the car then wet sanded it and buffed bit. You can't feel any lips on the stripe. The flames all but disappear depending on the angle you are looking from.
Brett, the biggest difference I see between seeing the in person and the pictures is the depth. The flaps on the tear outs look like they stick up about an half of inch.

Thanks man. You need to post some pics up of your car. Did you put in your upper control arm yet? I'm going back to Macon Moore tomorrow for the gauge install.

Jim, here's those pics. We brought the strips all the way around the body panels instead of stopping them 1/4 inch before the body panel ends. Painted the side mirrors too.

Couple more. I've been using this guy for years and he only charged me $1200. That included fixing all the chips in the front bumper and fixing two scratches in the rear.

Got the upper control arm in as well as the adjustable panhard bar. Need to get a hold of Dave so he can set my pinion angle for me. Mine is nothing special. She is an 08 torch red stripe delete. 1 of 27 if I remember correctly.

Whotrod9 thanks but your car looks amazing! Love the idea of the stripes ripping away at the paint. Nice touch. How long did it take for them to do that?

Brett,
They had the car just under 2 weeks, they told me it took longer to get the car ready to paint than the actual painting took. They masked everything. So far I have found any overspray, compound, etc. anywhere on the car.
