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
