It will cost you an arm and a leg, but for the results I personally think its well worth it. It runs $260 a PINT. Yes, per pint.

That stuff is like gold. I would make sure that whoever was going to shoot it knows what they are doing. I have seen some cars with it that looked great. Some of the colors look strange to me. I would hate to spend that kind of money on paint and later decide that I didn't like it.

Well put Troy-Curt

The fad color of '03? Personally I have been pimping HOK's Basecoat Pearl's to my customers lately. They are easier to shoot (and quicker) than the Kandies, and seem just as deep. My favorite is the Tangelo Pearl (AWESOME!). Looks terrific on ANYTHING with big fenders.

The color change paints (there are many different names for them) are as easy to shoot as a metallic, and besides being astronomically high-priced, they aren't all that "kustom" of a kustom paint. I would at the bare minimum go for a nice metallic or a pearl job over the color-changers anyday.

The 'hopper

I think dupont sells it for about $325 a pint.
but i agree with the rest of the posters that :
1- "that stuff is SO 2001 now anyway" - fad`s go in and out and this one has been on the way out.
2- "I would make sure that whoever was going to shoot it knows what they are doing."- Can be a really expensive mistake.
3- "I would at the bare minimum go for a nice metallic or a pearl job over the color-changers anyday." you can never go wrong with metallics, they always look good , day and night.

Most importantly i think the cameleon paint scheme is a hard resale item.
