    Awesome brother. I appreciate your reply.
    I may go with Craft Detailing. Brad's Auto Reconditioning is located in Mendon. I used Unique Car Care for the ceramic coating on my truck, but they moved out a little further away since then. They were in Stoneham, which was a hike, and now they are located in Andover. Even further away. lol

    I will definitely be in touch about seeing your car. I can only imagine your anticipation! lol
    Thanks brother!

    Thanks man. Great advice. That black is going to look sinister and I can't wait to see it shine. Does anyone know a good detailer in NE-Ohio who would be a good go-to for paint correction and protection?

    Here's another opinion for you. I would have to do black because I honestly can't stand the look of the front end of the GT500 with the center bumper piece black on its own. Extremely tacky to me. I much prefer the look of the GT350 and getting the GT500 black retains some of that look, with the increased performance of course of the GT500.

    Although a bastard to keep clean (and I vowed never to own a black car again), a no-stripe GT500 in Shadow Black would be absolutely stunning.

    And really the only way one would ever be a sleeper by any stretch of the imagination.

    Oh my, what a beautiful 350. I agree that while you may lose some of the contrast with a Shadow Black Gt500, IMO the black bar in the middle of the grille looks like the plastic black bar that they put on the original SRT8 Charger (below).

    Nothing beats a up close view of a clean black car! I said multiple times I'll never buy another black car and I even made it clear that I wasn't a fan of the new GT500 at first. I ate crow before and it didn't kill me, maybe I'll have to try it again!:cwl:

    Ryan: That is a GORGEOUS vehicle and I'm no fan of the color (any longer,) but that photo takes my breath away it looks SO good.

    Today is the 1st day ive ever actually seen a GT500. I saw white/blk stripes 1st.. thought i made the wrong decision on colors ( Iconic) then saw red hot mettalic, thought maybe i COULD actually own red.. then saw black. oh my lord it looks so sinister in person.. and finally saw my silver, and knew i picked properly.

    my point being, this car, in person, has no bad colors. and black, as much as i love it, i cant own again, HOWEVER, it is beautiful. If you want black, get the black. you chose it over the rest for whatever reason, you will not be disappointed

    I have a black '13 GT500 Convert...with matte black stripes....when clean it looks awesome...keeping it clean is near impossible . … not only do you need to keep it clean but if you dont clean it carefully it shows every missed spot, streak or any other washing imperfection. I ordered a PB 2020 GT 500 with white stripes....sorry black !

    Appreciate your feedback on the different color of GT500's that you saw today!

    Right now I am on the fence about changing my present color combination over to a Shadow Black GT500 and will take the next few weeks to decide if I actually will pull the trigger on another Shadow Black Mustang.

    Thanks again!
