Kandy on a Mopar

To my fellow wrench-spinners,
I'm getting ready to paint my '72 Dart, and I need some advice/opinions.
Both kandy's I've picked use a silver flake base. (I don't know the numbers for anything yet, I just looked over them this morning.)
One is a sunburst orange, and the other is an intense med. blue.
I've debated over painting the car silver, and using a kandy from the first body-side line down/ or painting the whole car with a kandy.
The advantage with the two-tone is, I could just leave the jambs silver, and run the kandy in about an inch. Would this help eliminate uneven color outside? What color combo would look best?
Silver/Blue---Silver/Sunburst---All kandy???
I'm new to this, so if an older rodder out there says "this color will be better". I'll go for it. I like both colors equally, so it really doesn't matter to me.
Any tips or trick to remember with this stuff? All paint is PPG.
One more thing...does PPG kandy reduce as much as sherwin-williams kandy?
Many thanks ahead for any help!
Mopar to ya,
