It is a simple BC/CC application and MUCH easier to apply than a three stage candy or pearl.

"Blitz black" may be non compliant in California ONLY because it is a cheap enamel paint. The COLOR "Semi gloss black" or "Flat Black" is NOT banned and you can apply it a number of different ways. Basically a bc/cc but with a "Matte" clear that has no or little gloss.

But I have to say switching from "Blitz black" to that orange is like changing your mind from an Aerostar mini van to a Viper.

An Aerostar mini van?!?!?!?! Are those words allowed on this website?

I know the Mystic paint isn't a Ford color. I was just poking fun at Fords. No hard feelings. IMO that type of paint only belongs on cars like Vipers. Not so sure about a 5.0 Mustang. Trying to make something out of nothing, you know what I mean?

How hard would it be to three stage a truck with new front/rear fenders, doors, a hood and roll pan?
