I was considering painting the car next summer and i wanted to know if i should just do a single stage black, or is it really worth while to do the dual stage with metallic chips?
Flake is either micro pieces of metal, or glass/plastic shavings. They don't all start silver... And I've never hit flake, and of my 5 lowriders all had extensive flake added into the clear layer. Standard lowrider paintjobs consist of 3 layers of clear with flake, 3 layers w/o flake, sand. Then build up an additional 12 layers of clear. The lambo blue you see in my signature contained ice pearl in the first 6 layers of clear, with straight clear for the remaining 6 layers. (Over a gallon of clear used.)dont really know what process is used for color flake all i know is that they all pretty much start silver
