As the title says Im getting a new paint job next week. Im going back w/ the factory red and Im going to ditch all the trim. Im toying w/ the idea of painting the grille, bumper and headlight trims as well. If I go all red it will look like a 1st Gen Lightining, which would not be bad, but I would really like to throw some more black into the mix. My wheels and tube steps are back and I plan to loose all the chrome and just have red and black. Does anyone have any ideas or pics? I'll take any suggestions I can get.

black bumpers?
are you doing it or having it done?

Having it painted at my local Ford dealer. One of my good buddies is a painter there. I was worried that black bumpers would look like a work truck, but I did think of that.

I think with everything painted red it would look real good, I painted everything including the mirrors and windshield trim the color of my OBS and I really liked it and its something you dont see much on an OBS

Even though this isnt your color this will give you an idea of how it will all look color matched except for the bumper of course
