I'm painting a 99 Ford truck tomorrow and it could be considered a normal every day job except this customer wants something a little different . The truck is black and what I would like to know is what I can do to make it look a little better with pearls and such. The guy does not want flames so this is not really a flame post but most of you guys have messed with pearls a stuff so I though I would ask all the pro's that frequent here . Standox has a paint called 'Monte Carlo Magic' that would be perfect because it is a multitone that looks black but changes to different colors when looked at different angles , the only problem is that it's $500.00 a quart up here in Canada and it would take 2 weeks to get so its out of the question .
We use Sherwin Williams Ultra 7000 BC/CC at our shop and we have a mixing station so I do have access to pearls . What do you think I can do to make black a liitle more 'cool' looking ?
I did another truck for someone else a couple months back and it was also black and the guy that owned it just started mixing pearls and stuff and I did'nt like the final result , so I dont want that to happen here . What we did was use a GM metallic black , added some blue and green powder sprayed it on and then in the first coat of clear added some red powder sprayed that and then just straight clear in the final coat , it looked good when you stuck your face right at the panel but from a distance it kinda looked a brownish sort of red .
