First Flame Job

I am about to try a farily simple flam job on a motorcycle gastank, I have never tried painting flames before but I am going to give it a shot.
I have the pattern drawn out on paper and the tank in primer. The plan was to shoot the base coat (peformance red) then mask the flames, shoot the flame color (metalic green), un mask and sand the two base coats and then shoot a clear.
Just curious if im on the right track.

I'd shoot the whole tank the first basecoat and then shoot the flames on top of that. I don't think I would sand the basecoats before the clear.

your on the right track just dont sand the basecoat. you cant sand a metallic or pearl base. its most important that you do what you like but be sure your ok with the red and green color choice. those are christmas colors all the way. you usually try and keep reds and greens away from one another. just my 2 cents.
