SHAKER...To Mod or Not To Mod... That is the question ?!!!

Just brought my PCP SHAKER home yesterday and was wondering.........
1- Should i paint the Shaker bubble Silver ?
2- Since it is an R/T should i put a silver R/T stripe on side?

What you guys think????

Well, its your car so do what you want...

Now with that said... there will be two camps, the first will be the purists who will look at the limited edition car and have an aneurysm at the gall of someone tweaking it at all... Then there will be the folks that will have no clue that they looking at a limited edition car and just wave and give you a thumbs up on your awesome ride.

Personally, I would be curious to see what a silver Shaker would look like with the black graphics...(do you have the black graphics)...

Straight Piped, Barton Shifter, Custom Orange R/T Stripes, Rocket Wheels, several items on order!

I'd say mod it if your worried about being able to get back to stock have it wrapped or plastidipped rather than painted. In general I like modding since it lets me personalize my ride but as Shane pointed out there will be a camp that cringes at the thought of modding a limited edition car.

Take it easy

They made 2000 of them. Mod it and drive it! My dad just picked up a new '14 392 PCP Core today and I told him to drive this car! He had a Shelby before and took a bath in it and never drove it. So many people want to put these cars away and think they are an investment. New cars are not investments. They are a hobby! My motto is buy it, mod it, drive it, love it!

I do have the black graphics.
I'm still hesitant to mod.
I'm still in the halfway camp.....purist/custom.

Back in the day, the '70-'71 shaker default color was Organisol black (matte/textured black) or Argent.

The only other colors offered for the shaker were B5 Blue or Rallye Red in conjunction with those body paint colors.
