Solid red or metallic red?
IMO matt stripes on a gloss background just look plain wrong, two different finishes colliding if you like. Why not gloss?

Also, to my eye solid colour stripes on a metallic paint background also look mismatched. Eg. the white stripes on metallic painted '67-on Shelbys.

Were I to order a new Mustang, if solid red then I'd have white stripes, but if metallic red then I'd have silver stripes.

But that's just my taste. At the end of the day, it's your car and has to please you not me or anybody else.
I suggest you do some photo-shopping!

Hey Philip,
Definitely Matt Black! Goes with the wheels and grill etc.
And then lower and add this spoiler, https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/274699719342?hash=item3ff56112ae:g:AOQAAOSwKHxfYglS
Cheers Phil.

If you've never buggered anything you've never done anything!
But if you've buggered a lot maybe you're not very good at it!
