    You can shoot a candy top coat on a chrome/aluminum base or white, purple and red look good on white, blue I only like over chrome.

    I dont use a hobby gun but, the application on the second coat is a pain with the hooby gun. Key is to spray the second coat with a new ground(hooK) and apply on a part with a temp of no less then 180f.

      hey jeff, i like to shoot the candys over a good metalic silver base, they have a nice rich look and the hint of sparkle in them.

            Go with mirror aluminum or chrome, once clear coat goes on top they all match a polished finish. the closest I have every come is with mirror chrome with a high gloss 200plus clear

                Then it wont last you no more then a day if that, the chrome or aluminum colors have to be cleared, it scratches and discolors, if you get any type of cleaner on it or even a simple car wash they stain.

                I seen the pics of the covers you did in the chrome, did you use a hobby gun
