Serious tip bro,
Kandy jobs CAN NOT be panel painted. Sorry,but it just don't work that way.
You want a kandy job,It's GOT to be put together, P-E-R-I-O-D......
Jambs and insides are one thing and the odds of it matching the outside are up to the chops of the painter.
Outside, Basically,IMPOSSIABLE.
Kandy has to be sprayed at one time and walk the length if you want a consistant color and the painter best be up to it.
Kandy jobs are the toughest,reason it COSTS so much for a GOOD one.
LOT of work and planning involved along with a super CLEAN spray inviroment,exceptional technique and a lot of luck.
Bikes are 1 thing,A complete vehicle is another all together.
75% of MY work IS kandy and it's a bitsh. You best talk with the painter involved and find out what HE says about it.
The Blitz will have to come afterward as it can't be clear coated.

That's the color I think. I'll have to try and get a paint code and then buy a pint to see how it looks. Good eyes. Thank you for the information.
