#2912 Black Diamond Firemist Examples

Do anyone have any examples of TCP Global Restoration Shop color:
#2912 Black Diamond Firemist
http://www.tcpglobal.com/restorationshop/rsp2912.aspx
Their website and even their printed pamphlet does not show the very clear detail of the metallic in the black. May use this on a repaint of a 91 BMW which currently is Diamantschwarz Metallic(BMW 181 color code). I don't care about color match as this will be a total repaint. I just do not want the metallic to be overboard..
Primers and clears will be SPI, although not totally sure what types I will use yet.. So if anyone could post some pics of any projects they did with this color I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
Dan

If you are looking for a more subtle sparkle then stay away from the firemist colors. Firemist gives a high sparkle almost as much as a small metal flake. If you like the black pearl but don't want a lot of pop you might try one of their black pearls or something like one of the black pearls in this line up:

I was just looking at their color selector and they have several other black effect colors that are real paint chips so can make out the effect better.

Bayou,
Thanks for that...I have looked at their paints and was also considering that black pearl (Tahitian Black). I haven't seen too many reviews on their products though.
