Since you like to experiment, this might be an option for a candy-like red color.
I recently did a Harley road bike in the 2010 Camaro Synergy green. It uses an unusually brilliant silver base, with a green tint coat on top. That green coat has a pearl mixed in, which MAY make the repairability more likely.
Possibly, you could experiment, and make a red top coat using candy red plus a pearl mixed in, that has a similar effect.
If not, maybe just trying some samples using that silver base... or comparison to the standard basecoat silvers. This silver might give your Brandywine give an even stronger candy-look than you usually get over metallic.
If you aren't familiar with the green, Google the color name for pictures of those Camaros. A few of the photos show the intensity it actually has in bright light.
