Just a story of something that Happened many years ago.
Guy came in and wanted to paint a Camaro for his kids first car. A price was agreed upon, and I got started. It turned into a full blown restoration That took well into a year. But anyway; The color was decided on, and we went to the paint store. Came back with a couple boxes of quart cans. HOK Candy Apple Red, gold base. Cleaned out the shop, put the car in the center of the building, up on stands. Ran everybody off, locked the door, and started spraying. Took 3 days, Gold first day, red next day, and clear 3rd day. Looked real good. 4th day I "cracked it open" with 800 grit, to let it dry. He came in and decided that he wanted to stripe it with the gold base that was left. I told him that I'd let it dry for a day or 3, due to the build up of laquer paint.
On the 8th day, I layed out the stripes, and masked everything off. Knowing that the red was a bleeder, I shot a coat of grey sealer on the stripes. Right before my eyes the sealer turned purple. :O Oh well, I shot the gold to it, it looked good, and brite. Went home. Next day, I cleared it. As soon as I could I cracked it open to allow it to dry good. and started buffing the rest of the car. By the time I got to the hood, and decklid, the stripes had started to turn. I buffed it on out, and put it in the sunlight. The gold stripes were not quite as brite as before, but were still good and gold. I would see that car regularly, and noticed the stripes were turning more and more bronze in color.
Finally, after many years, the stripes had gone almost invisible. Only when the light hits just so, can you see them.
The guy loves the way they look, and have changed over the years.
