I need to mention that candy colors are notoriously hard to match! You can forget about any kind of normal blend procedure and go ahead and "butt" or panel match it, adding coats of ever more reduced candy to the panel until the match looks good under bright light. Big pain in the ***!

That's why I don't recommend them. There are many factory colors that approach a "candy" look, and most people are happy to know that they have a beautiful vehicle that can also be easily repaired.
