What year corvette? It can be done, but the type of paint on the car will depend on what year it was manufactured, which will also determine whether it is advisable to clear over your existing paint.

What type pearl a solid 2 or 3 part to cover the red or a transparent powder in a clear using your red as a base ground coat? and carolinacustoms is right the type of paint now on your Vette has to be compatible with the products you use!!! Blue pearl or a flip flop in a clear looks great over a red ground coat
