so here is how she currently lies, a sorry sight!
The plan WAS to strip the car totally but with the paint combination I've decided to go with it needs to be done in one (glitter!) engine bay needs more work as the first person i actually trusted with the car has made a total hash of things so has left me very nervous. he work done to her while i've been away looks great though on the body

I personally think you'd massively devalue the car by adding a flake over the top of a metallic base.

A nice metallic will be plenty to give it a nice sparkle.

Make sure you check out the new vw black, fords panther and tuxedo blacks are also awesome colours.

Plenty of options out there without going for a custom job.

not bothered about devaluing, this is my car for life, 11 years of ownership and i do not plan to ever part with it for sentimental reasons and more. last spray went straight gloss black which I loved but I'm taking the car a stage further for shows and trying to find a paint with the rainbow within the black is not proving particularly easy hence the decision to add more over

Ok so I may as well keep this one flowing.. as of today the car is in her shiny new clothes. More to do but the main part is in paint just leaving the slam panel bonnet front bumper and mirrors to spray.

Start of prep. Just after this stage some of you are aware of my very ill Step dad and his passing so had to leave the car in the bodyshop's very capable hands.

Fast forwarding to today and when I got to the bodyshop I'm astounded at the work the guys did there, she's been rolled in to the booth wet on wet primed followed by basecoat, a very very small amount of extra flake added (about half a teaspoon for the whole car) followed then by several coats of laquer. Left in the booth tonight in the warm to cure rather than fast bake.[IMG][/IMG]
