Carb Grey would be my only change to my current order. Torn between that and the IS I ordered. :unsure:

No combo is more polarizing than this specific build - Badlands in carb gray with a MIC top and optional wheels. Beadlocks/grille/top/flares/handles represent every shade of gray Ford has to offer.

I could see most people loving the look as its near matchy-matchy...and other people on the 'spectrum' having a nervous breakdown over the different shades of gray. lol. I am somewhere in between, as its kind of a 'safe' build if you cant decide, and it doesnt drive you nuts.

It's got a pretty "stealth-mode" look. A part of me likes it, the other part of me is just not "wowed" by it. It all kind of blends together, but still a decent look. My favorite part is the close-up of the paint on the hood. It is definitely a nice looking color.

This is exactly why I decided to go with black instead of grey. I’m going Badlands and I loved my dark grey fusion and this color is basically the same. Doesn’t show dirt, easy on the eyes, and looks really nice. But, with the grey rings, grille, and MIC top, there’s just too many competing greys that don’t appear cohesive. I could get a soft top then paint the rings and grille black to make it look less choppy, but I can also do that with black and murder it out.

I see what you did there. I always modify parts, the tidbits never exactly match, so starting off with an ensemble isn't a negative for me.

Talk about polar opposites. I had one, exactly one, black car in my life, never again. I grant they look awesome clean.

Definitely going to be more work, but my wife already has a black vehicle and she’s a real stickler. We’re washing that thing every few days, so I’ll be killing two birds with one hose. 🙂

Get you one of those memberships at the local touch-free carwash.

It has the stealth mode look that I was going for! I am very pleased with how it looks! So glad that I picked this over A51, VB, and AMB. Seriously though, none of the colors are 'bad', they did a great job on colors.
