68 Chevelle base/inter/clear insite pls.

I would like to get some insite from you fellas, I am about to start painting my 68 chevelle in a couple of months. My idea is to stick with original butternut yellow paint code YY with some ghost pearls either a blue or green pearl. I have heard good things about House of Kolor? Going to bring it down to sheet metal all parts with remain on car except for the hood. I have a few questions:

What primer to use? quanity?
What base code brand? quanity?
What intercoat clear? How much pearl to add and intercoat? Overlap?
What top clear to use? quanity and brand?
What pearl do you recommend? Brand and color over butternut yellow?

Any thoughts would be helpful and maybe some pictures of your guys pearl paint jobs and recommendations. Thanks in advance!
