Honestly, the distressed look is trendy right now. People pay $$$ to make their new vehicles look that way.

So are you keeping it or gonna paint it and sell it? Either way nice work from what I can see from you pictures. Personally if I put that much time and energy into it... I'd be driving it for a while before I'd consider selling, but that's just me.

THAT's what I'm talkin about! Nice job.

Thatís what I I love about this forum. We get to see the resurrection of vans the with some love are back on the road.

Heck if he wraps it in the distressed look it will be safer at trail heads.

It's a Mustang, it's a thing with a fleeting life anyway. It will eventually be drawn to a curb or median strip, just like a moth is drawn to a flame.

I believe that is actually a wrap. I don't understand it myself. I read an article once about a guy who had a very nice Camaro and moved to NYC. He had a similar wrap done so it would look like a complete POS and be left alone. His plan was to have it removed after 3 years when he moved away.
