    No more black, three stage gold pearl special mix, pops big time in the sun. Best part is all little bad places fixed and easier to keep clean.

    That's it exactly. You can see the lines of the car better now. And it seems to look great from every angle.

    I like it...a lot. Is that a semi-gloss finish?

    Looks really nice.

    Now the only thing I would change is raise the front an inch or so to get the perfect stance for it. It now looks to have a slight forward rake, and the slightly lower in the back will make the car flow even better than what it does now.

    But I really like the new color on it.


    As is...

    Raised a little in the front. Now the car sits near level...

    I usaully side with Old man Ford, on color. You can choose from black, or black.....although, black is always a good choice. In this particular case, I think that is an amazing color choice! Definatly shows off the body lines better.
    I also agree with Rikster. The front is just a little too low, in relation to the rear.

    rikster, your right,were you put it is driving height, my shot is with all the air out of the bags, then it sits about an inch lower in the front.
    Thanks for the good words
