    Hey all,

    my ride is awesome except for its poor paint state: roof and hood are burnt after heavy sun exposure (Spain) and sides were key-scratched by some random, drunk individual or something.

    Whatever I want to get my car painted in a car paint shop. I would like to get something like this:

    so I guess I need a three layer paint job:
    • Black base layer
    • Pearlescent gold or bronze layer
    • Protection layer
    is this right? Should I specify something about the pearlescent layer? I mean I just want a subtle effect like that in the Renault Clio pic, not something excessive like this:

    in other words I want a black car with a subtle "gold" reflection. I dont want it to look gold all around LOL.

    You could ask for black with a small amount of gold fleck through it, will only be 2 coats then

    I see, any ideas about proportions? I have read something like 1:200 (1 part of pearl for every 200 parts of base paint) isn't it too little? And should it be mixed with base coat or the clear coat (protective). Thanks!

    I’m not sure, you’d be better asking a body shop, sorry
