Metalflake paint

I just shot my firewall in silver w/(.015) metlalflake which was listed as HotRod Flake. The problem is that it isn't the look I wanted. I guess I need bigger flake. Does anyone know what size the flakes come in? What gun to use, regular high pressure or HVLP? What size tip do I need(bigger than 1.2)?

I appreciate any help I can get.

By the way I tried to shoot the basecoat w/flake and it blocked up my HVLPgun(1.2 tip). I finished shooting with a regular gun.

Is it normal to have a lot of flake flying thru the air and landing on the ground?
