WIDE-BODY KIT FROM SCRATCH

I see what you mean. It is definitely one way to do this build. I have a few friends that feel the car should go stripe-less. The intention all along is to do an evolved version of the BOSS 302 stripe from the year before. Something you might have even seen from Ford or Shelby. However, the car has a lot more realestate in front of the tire so I flipped the stripe and have the side stripe wrapping around the nose of the car rather than the area between the door and tire. In my view, even though it’s very different than a BOSS stripe, it needs to be something they eye would be used to seeing on a Mustang vs something totally off the cuff. I hope I don’t disappoint too many people but I personally am happy with the aggressiveness. Of course it’s just a concept and once we start plotting and cutting here on site it will get tweaked to fit best but a mustang with no stripes isn’t a mustang that I have ownership of.

Exactly my taste. I’d have some killer call outs if I was sporting a Voodoo engine or something exotic like that but I don’t think it’s worth throwing on 347 so I opted to go with my Design name VILAN and the PYTHON logo.

[i have a few friends that feel the car should go stripe-less. ]

Not saying that at all, I like the 70's style too. Just saying a bit more subtle/balanced on where on the body line.

Straight lines for a Python theme... me thinking there must be a way to add a little twist to the 70 graphics,

and link the theme&name that you so nicely represented into your badges.

They still have to get the black Powdercoated 1/4” honeycomb grills popping out

I find it very satisfying that the charcoal vinyl flops from flat black on one angle to almost silver on the opposite angle.

Wow!

First of all, the contrast between the stripes and the paint is great!

But I really like how the appearance of the stripes changes with the angle. That's really spectacular and keeps the graphics alive and moving (kinda..).

Of course with black, the red /orange pin stripe is the icing on the cake!!

Great job!

Gorgeous car. Where will you show it once done?

I dig the color, graphics, hood, wide stance, every angle of it. Excellent job!

Thanks guys. I haven’t thought about where if show it. Our own MOTORAMA show pales in comparison to the Detroit custom car show. Maybe I take it Stateside.

Your right lol. The naked eye is so much better. You really get the colour flop and crispness. Vinyl has come such a long way.

What kind of vinyl film is this? How did/do you cut it?

The application looks very pro!

3M matte charcoal metallic. Teflon tape / hand layed and cut and small amount of machine cut for lettering.

[hand layed and cut]

How cut? With sharp blade with the guiding/protecting tape underneath the material along the cut?

Once cut you remove the tape underneath?
