Paint Color For My 86 Gt

  1. looks like they are 18x8.5's and 18x10's. CCW says 2700 for the rims and 150 for centers. So tempting.
     
  2. Instant weight reduction and increased cooling. :eek: Did you have hood pins AND do you have vinyl seat covers? If not, I am getting some before I go on the Sandhills open road challenge.
     
  3. If mullets are out, so are rear window louvers that buzz with the sub woofers.:ot::hide:
     
  4. This so funny. You have the gray color that I plan to paint and you're thinking about going away from it.... I guess it is the old been-there-done-that.:)

    I have been all over the charts thinking about color too. The problem, IMO, is these foxes don't just look great in any color. I was looking at "silver for a while, but I noticed that it appears to exaggerate all the panel seams, especially where the front bumper cover to fender meet; as does most other lighter colors.

    One of your pics looks like an 87+ and not an 86; wondering if the grays on both are the same code?

    Like another put it, maybe painting your moldings will freshin things up for you. I plan to paint mine on the 86GT vert. In addition I will body color the front widow framing. My son likes the black belt molding, but then he's only 17, :baby: what does he know, lol. Probably the same things the original Ford molding designer did...
     
  5. I like all the trim and molding black not body color. I'm with your son.

  6. LOL My wifes 86 T-Top has 2 12 inch subs and louvers.
     
  7. I picked up 2 tenths of a second once the hood was off. I think I wasn't getting enough air to the motor. I have quite the drop filter so that the 351w fit under that cowl hood. I think it was hurting me.
