I'm leading towards painting my '88 Fox body mustang lime green with the 95 Cobra R wheels. What do you guys think about this, any opinions?

It's really hard to fault someone for painting a car in a color that they like. :shrug:

Lime green isn't really my thing but I wouldn't hesitate to paint a Fox in that new metallic orange that they put on Vettes and Special order Cadillacs. :drool:

Define Lime Green. The Lime Green metallic that was on the 70 Mustang was pretty nice. Thats what my 70 was from the factory, but long since repainted.

Lime green is a very popular color right now, but may not age well. Fashion is fickle and a paint color change is not cheap. Just something to think about as styles and fashion evolve.

Go for it.

My only request is to paint the entire car that color. Engine bay, door jambs, under the hatch/trunk, etc.
I second that! If you going to do it, go all the way. Nothing like opening a door or a hood and having a totally different color in the jambs/bay.

I'm a big fan of factory colors. I had a custom tripple stage candy red paint job once. That thing couldn't be touched up. Every paint correction stood out like a one legged stripper.

Remember the chameleon paint they put on Camaros? I was talking to a P&B manager about the the mystic cobras back in the day and he said that wasn't terrible to match, but that chameleon was a nightmare.

What color is it now? what was factory color? Are you flipping /selling car in next 3 yrs?
I always like to weigh these in that decision.
The green will be a bold statement if done right .
You got to do what you got to do though.

I think that green is neat.

At least there are pics on internet to look at

You know, you can get a wider range of colors with a wrap. There are some pretty nice colors and metallics out there.
