Wanted: pics and or vid of any car that is painted white with a pearl,

as the title says, after pics of any car really, with a bright *** white and a blue pearl preferably, any other pearl will do fine though as a rough look but it has to be on white.

just trying to figure out if i want a pearl on my car when i get it painted

thanks

Hey Kcuf , where ya been ?



Some peals are powdered additives and are tough to keep consistant and are time consumming to fix unless you remember exactly how much of what was used.

Here is a factory goldish Lexus white pearl for some contrast.
The advantage to a factory coded pearl is they are easier to repair if you have to.

Check out Cadillacs Pear White. It has a slight metal flake, and a blueish tint. Beautiful colour.

pearl painting

I had my 40 chevy 2 dr. sedan painted flip flop pearl. He used 89 GMC truck white, then cleared with the pearl mixed in. (PPG, paint, pearl, and thinner) I was told that the more pearl added would cause it to run in the clear. He mixed more paint than needed. He said , if you need to spot paint it later for whatever, you never get it to match. It looked best in the late afternoon sun. I wanted to get in a flat parking lot after a rain after dark with the lights causing reflexing from the wet ground.
I didn't get what I wanted, which was pearl like the keys on a piano, or handles on a pistol. I was satisfied with what I got. Best custom rod sedan in the Atlantic div. in the world of wheels in 91. mite show in my jou., can't remember. Send me and address, and I send you some pictures. Marcel

Ya know, I've been meaning to post up some pics of my car, but never got around to doing so until now . . . sorry 'bout that. At any rate, '00 Trans Am in Arctic White with iridescent ghost flames. The flames' main color is green, but depending on the angle will flash blue or purple in the right light (sunlight or fluorescent light really brings 'em out). It's real hard to get good pictures, though. They're barely visible in the first pic, but the second gives a good shot of the iridescence.

Actually, if the light is right - or not right, depending on perspective - you wouldn't even know they're there. Had a couple fun conversations because of that.
