Has anyone done some stripping and or lettering on the new mustang? Customer (Dealership) wants me to design something different for the new mustang. Personaly I find that it looks great just as they come out of the factory , but customer wants all the mustang that comes out of his dealership to have something different than others.

Can't seem to come up with anything that would improve the perfect body line that was given to this model

I do new vehicles all the time. A little elegance, maybe a triple line which is a way different look then a double, done in a simular color to the vehicle itself. Doing dealerships is my specialty but going overboard I leave to my competitors. I find it best to work up to graphics from a mediocre point of view because no one thinks alike.

All my work is done by hand [Smile]

Denis - I saw an '05 on the lot the other day...it was a burgundy one with a retro camel colored stripe of about 2" width with a small (1/4") void on each side and then a 1/4" stripe on each side of the void....it was run very low on the door from wheel well to wheel well...I believe it was factory and it had a mustang logo reverse cut out of it on the front side of the door.

Simple, kind of classic and looked good in my opinion. Wasn't flashy.

And I agree....the 05's have "pinache".

I have a customer wanting an old BOSS 302 style stripe on his 05, should look pretty cool.

I saw a clipart of a horse head and mane that is popular in Kentuchy right now that might look good on the sides of the new mustang. [Rolling On The Floor]

Can't say that I've done a real one yet, but the 2005 Mustang is featured in the video game Need For Speed Underground 2. You can customize the paint color, add vinyl graphics and alter body parts like the spoilers, headlights, window tints, etc.

Pretty cool to play with, but I still think going too far from stock lessens the "retro" feel it was designed to achive...
...which has done very well.

I like my paint shaken, not stirred.

The '05 Mustang isn't any different than anyother vehicle out when it comes to designing pinstriping or graphic applications. The name of the game is to "enhance" what is already there, accent the body. How you design it is only real decision to make, mild, wild, or anything inbetween, that's all up to designer. I am fond of "tweakn'" the stock look a bit by using little tricks I've learned over the years to break it up w/o destroying or altering the basic lines of the vehicle.

Balance and color usage is very important too, you can alter many a design by changing the color around, so, there is no one way to do a new mustang. My only question is: how do we get that dealer down here in the states, dealers here have a new misperception of how we must do business by requiring price levels(they set) and paydates(they set), I'm self-employeed and this goes against that grain. If I wanted to work; like a job; I'd go get one and it wouldn't be in a dealership either.
Don't know what to say about lack of ideas, maybe do some research and see what trips your trigger there, I'd also include your principle in all of those decisions as it sounds as if leaving you to your own ideas, isn't working. Personally, I never include a dealer rep to help guide my artistic choices, it's simply a matter of who knows what and why are you doing something you know nothing about, go sell a car...
