Inferno Orange guys with Factory GFX step on in!

Hey guys, I've looked through alot of the Inferno orange pics and cant quite find what im looking for. Im pulling the trigger on a 2SS in a few months, the dealer has agreed to give me the ground effects at wholesale price painted any color I want. I was thinking of doing the GFX in gloss black or somthing to offset the orange with the stripe package. Has anyone else done this?? If so post up your pics guys! Its much appreciated

I havent seen anyone paint the GFX gloss black yet. Probably would look pretty sweet. Most people leave them the factory grey color or paint them to match.

I had mine painted to match.

Thanks for the pics! I wish I had some photoshop or some other editing software, I love the GFX, Im thinking do them in gloss black, have the legacy grill installed in gloss black, also getting hte dovetail spoiler have it in gloss black, two tone the car pretty good wihtout actually painting the car itself. Without the GFX I think the 5th Gens look pretty naked IMO Love your hood btw!

Not the best shots, but mine are unpainted. Wasn't offered from the factory when I got it.

I like it! deff needs a lil more shine to go with that orange! I think it'l look sick also, especially with that black grill up there. Also thought about getting the T3 edition stripes, dealer said it'd be no problem ordering them and installing them for about the same as the standard stripe kit. Doubt anybody has done that yet. I'm aiming for my 5th gen to be unique, I got a thing for unique cars, which is why I had a 05 Goat, not many of them at all around my area, 5th gens are starting to get common but I love them, so I'l have to make it my own! at least its not like a dime-a-dozen mustang. Those things are everywhere around here. THanks so much for the vid. Im trying... TRYING to hold off til around the end of the year, pick up a '12 for a steal.

Thanks for the pics! yeah I remember when they first came out I was thinking about trading up from the goat but couldnt bring myself to part with her at the time, I couple ss models I found had the gfx but they were gray and the dealer told me they'd paint them for a couple grand extra (highway freakin robbery) and I told them no chance in hell I was buying it unless they painted them, they already had a rediculous mark up, setting at close to 50k for a 2SS msrp was 39? maybe 40? lol so I walked and never looked back. Even in the gray they look good on the Inferno orange, just gotta have that offset! Thanks again for the pics! beautiful car!

Thanks for the compliment! After having the car for close to 3 years, I'm kinda partial to the gray. So for no issues with stone chips so I'm reluctant to paint the GFX. However, the matte vinyl stripes will be gone soon. PITA to maintain and I have a couple of chips and marks in them. Going with gloss black paint in the same pattern with some gold metal flake. Saw something similar on an IOM and it looked awesome.

ive been thinking of painting the stripes on also, my area is horrible for having "incidents" to cause rockchips considering I live in the middle of the coal fields. Coal Trucks are a PITA around here and so is keeping a car clean. I just havent decided on stripes yet, the dealear offered to have them done when everything else is installed, 900 instead of the 4xx for the stripe kit to be painted. Ive been thinking of going with the T3 edition stripes also, they said they could be ordered at not much more than the regular stripes. Just aiming for unique :P

IOM Car + Black Dovetail + Black GFX + Black Wheels = a hot setup. Love this, but it'd be better with the dovetail
