its basically like spraying the whole car again, its not really advisable to undertake this yourself unless you know wot you are doing

all you do is mix the 'sparkles' in with the lacquer and spray, but the 'sparkles' will block up your nozzle and cause it to splutter resulting in shed loads of over spray

I think a certain type of spray gun is needed when painting with metal flake.

I did this on my mates spare bonnet HARD JOB.
I would get a pro to do it i am good with a spray gun and i must admit it really was a hard job.

When the nozzle blocks you unblock it go back to were the glitter didnt hit the paint and start again and if you mess it up you end up with loads of glitter in the one place.

I will have a word with my mate cos i think there is a new thing in a wax jelly that has just come out were its like waxing your car but glittering it instead i will ask him 2night let you know at the meet.

NOT SURE HOW TRUE THIS IS THOUGH ANYBODY ELSE HEARD OR IT? think

Even with metallic it's difficult, and you've got to the keep the gun moving, otherwise, you'll get an excess of 'glitter' in one area.
I've seen cars with it on (like green base with gold flakes, it looks mad), but not many. Expect to pay for the job, I can't think of anything more difficult. (apart from spraying acid or something).

Can't you just do like in school, just cover the whole car in pritt stick and sprinkle all the metal flakes over it for (for now). smile

Pete in automotion is the best one to speak to ive seen some of his work with this spray and he does a great job but he told me it is very time consuming as once sprayed and dryed you have to sand it back and get it all flat again and the relacquer it otherwise your left with a lumpy finish where the glitter sits. His prices are very good aswell plus he will provide you with a free coutesy car.
