Awesome, maybe I can finally get some replacement BASF Extreme Mystic paint for the replacement SEMA front CF SR ground effects so I can return it to SEMA show form. :)

We may have discussed this before Rick, feel free to remind me.

If my memory is working correct. Ford Motor Company produced two regular production 1995 Mustang GT convertibles with 5-speed transmissions that where pilot vehicles for Mystic paint application.

Do you know what happened to these pilot cars?

One of the convertibles is owned by an ex-Ford employee and the other still owned by a still Ford Exec. Both are still in Michigan area. They each sent me pictures of their convertibles and they are not as colorful as my car. The BASF Extreme Mystic is the only one with that particular hue even though all 3 (including mine) are 1995 convertibles. The finishes are quite different amongst all 3.

Hope that helps!

Mine is BASF Extreme Mystic NOT Ford SVT Mystic. Totally different colors. Ford SVT took my BASF Mystic and cut it with Black paint to paint more cars with same technology at a cheaper price. There is only one car, one application of BASF Extreme Mystic paint and that is my S351R car.
