By the time he got there I forgot to get pics of it on the truck. It’s going to be Mulsanne Blue. It is not a Z28 but thinking of white Z28 stripes. Any input is welcome. I won’t badge it as a Z28 but I really like the look of the stripes.

    That is going to look great. White stripes all the way. Mine is not a Z28 either but is painted citrus green with black stripes. The stripes give it that extra wow. How long is going to takedown complete?

    That's gotta be a good feeling for you. Is there a timeline? Looking forward to seeing another one painted. I'd go with the stripes too. White, black, silver, doesn't matter. I think stripes look great on these cars.

    Congrats!:bowtie:
    When you see your car for the first time after paint, you're gonna be blown away. It's quite a feeling.

    Thanks for all the great comments on the stripes. I am definitely leaning towards the stripes and thinking maybe a very light hint of blue pearl in them the same shade as the Mulsanne blue but don't want to have to worry about color matching if something should happen to damage one of them. I have lots of time to decide on that. It sure does feel good. I was so excited I forgot to get a pic of it on the rollback. LOL. I will be checking in on it from time to time since he wants payment for hours worked every week or two he says. I will add pics of progress. He says around 6 months as he has 3 other cars in the shop along with mine.

    Did they ever put silver/gray stripes on that color? Looks like a lot of good work in that car already. New paint really makes it seem worthwhile I think. Keep us posted on the progress.
