thanks everyone for all your help, here is the final results.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help from all of you.
This is the first time I have painted anything in 10 years and my first candy job.
I don't think I would have had the same results without all of you.
The color is HOK Tangerine
I sprayed the HOK basekandy with HOK Ice Pearl added over a orange base instead of white or black as suggested.
(15 grams ice pearl to 1 quart kandybase)
I then mixed a few grams of ice pearl alone with some HOK intercoat clear and slightly fogged all the pieces.
I then mixed HOK KandyKoncentrate with a polyurethane clear
(1 oz KK to 1 quart clear)
I have a total of 4 candy polyurethane coats over all the pieces
but only 2 over the flames.
Then everything has 3 coats of polyurethane clear.
Paint is pretty thick but looks awesome, hopefully she will not chip to bad because of the thickness. It will be a bar hopper bike and won't be driven a whole lot so it should hold up for a while

Thanks Dave

thanks guys
also those are my first shot at laying flames out, took 2 days to do though!
I tried to do the pin-striping but could not meet my expectations so I hired a pro to do it.

Looks real nice! You're going to get requests for more paint work when that one hits the streets

Great job, you should be proud of your work. I love it when someone does there own work, and not hire the work out.

BADA.. JOB guy.

Striping is tough and with THAT fine of a job would be a shame to screw with a bad pinstripe job.

Thanks again for all the complements guys

I want to add that the clear I use is BarryK's SPI universal clear.
It lays down awesome and is cheap for around a 150 for 1 gallon of clear and activator (2 gallons sprayable)
First time I have ever used his clear and sure it won't be the last.

This was also the first time I had used HOK products also and I really like it.
It is pricey if you order thru a local dealer but I was buying it online making it a little closer to the name brand paints.
HOK by far has the best color selection out there, and buying the paint chip books are the best investment I did, I was able to take my time and pick the color that I wanted, nothing worse than laying down a paint job and not liking the color!
