No offense but have you seen what a single stage metallic looks like??? in regards to the depth of the flake? If I were to go SS I would go with a solid color. Apart from losing the gloss as swv says you will also get a generic looking metallic. With solid colors you are only losing a little gloss but the color is dead on. With metallic, it just looks like a cheap maaco job or taxi cab or something. Can't really buff on them either due to flakes not being UNDER clear. Try cutting and buffing on that and you got fishscales. If you're not just picking SS metallic cause you got jambs already a metallic than you might want to consider those factors before choosing to go single stage AND metallic as opposed to a solid color.
