So you'll be close to all the mayhem? A few of my buddies and I reserved 3 sites at Thunder Gulch up in Bunnell. A little ways away from the craziness, but the place has it's own bar/club, live entertainment, and full hookups, plus it's pretty affordable. I can't wait...

I'm guessing you got the Black Pearl Paint then. There are a couple pictures of a Black Pearl unit on our XLR Facebook page's plant tour album if you haven't seen a finished one yet.

Yes... well... sort of. I started with the Black Pearl and customized it a bit. Should be a beautiful setup when done! I've seen the official Black Pearl on dealer websites but can't wait to see my version...

Oh yes. I did hear something about a customized Black Pearl paint unit. I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks when it comes back from the paint shop as well. Our paint units are some of the best looking on the market in my opinion.

I completely agree. XLR is one of the few out there that I wouldn't say looked too loud with full body paint. Also, the only company that makes a color scheme with no real colors. Black Pearl is black, silver, and gray. I like it from a purist standpoint. When I mentioned to my dealer about substituting colors I thought it would be a quick NO. In 5 minutes he emailed me back and told me you all said sure, let us know what the customer wants and we'll get it done! I was pretty surprised and jumped on the opportunity. Mine is going to be two Ford colors I really like. Ingot Silver metallic and Magnesium metallic. I skipped the black and just used the Magnesium both where the XLR gray was and where the XLR black was. Silver stayed where it was. I preferred not having black for a couple of reasons. First, it shows dirt and scratches more than any other color. Second, it will soak up the sun more too. My old saying was, black is the best looking color on a vehicle bar none when it's clean. The problem is, it's never clean... Anyways, can't wait to see it. Ford's metallics have real depth so I'm sure it will be eye catching...

We have done a few customized paint jobs. the last of them being Seattle sports colors for a dealer in Seattle. Pics of this 395 are also on our Facebook page. Customization of any kind can be difficult at times, but paint doesn't require us to change or reengineer anything...so it's an easy yes. I'm sure it will turn out amazing!
