    I am block sanding my car down right now. I have not decided on a paint color. I am open to ideas. I am thinking of doing a his and hers same paint job on our 86's. Mine a hatch wifes a t-top hatch. Same grey GT interiors. I like the new Sterling grey and the deep impact blue. Like I said I'm open to ideas. Post pics of your favorite paint jobs on fox body's please.

    I like the side moldings being painted, finally got mine done. That would look good on yours IMO.

    Side moldings body color?

    I did that when I painted my car viper blue. I ended up taping the car off after 5 years and repainting them black. I like the paint being broken up a bit.

    That would be very similary to how my car would look minus the sunroof.

    My car was actually light Regatta Blue from the factory I think.

    Yah my car is painted viper blue right now. It's the color I am block sanding off. The car looked great that color but it has been that color for 8 ish years now. I was thinking of changing it up. It is a very beautiful color though.

    I think I want to go with a modern color to help update the 86. The kona blue is beautiful as well.

    Maybe not different enough from your Viper Blue, but I always loved my Sapphire Blue Mustang. Has a purple hue to it.

    A guy posted this Mustang. It's almost exactly what I imagine my car looking like. My only issue is I have a buddy with a grey 72 cuda and a bro-inlaw with a grey 68 dart.[​IMG]

    Those are my rims and everything. Gauges on cowl panel.

    I would want black body molding and sail panels. Right now I don't have my spoiler on my car. I could put it back on though. I always wanted a 93 cobra wing.

    Your buddy and bro-in-law have completely different cars so I wouldnt worry so much about that. I understand where you are coming from though, I purposely didnt buy a silver painted Harley because my brother had one, but those all look very similar. In the end, if its what you wanted, then do it and dont worry about anyone else. I think it looks damn good.

    I know one thing for sure....If I paint it grey I won't have to take black and whites like this wishing the car was grey.
