    Default KANDY GOLD OVER A BROWN HIGH METALLIC BASE?????

    NEED SOME OPINIONS
    ok before i start ordering up shit that aint gonna work heres the delimma

    the kandy rootbeer from hok is done with.... they are supposedly discontinuing the whole uk candy line and i believe they started with the rootbeer because all over the country from east to west no one has it and hok has been on back order for MONTHS i was told that the whole uk kandy line is being dis continued and they will only offer the koncentrates supposedly...



    so i have this brown ive been likeing but i NEED more to it

    so im thinking if i add 2 coats of kandy gold over it will it give me a nice look to the brown base????? or even orange candy??? im not sure what i wanna do i just need it too look hot... its going on my caprice and its going all out custom i cant just have a fucking base/clear paint job on it


    heres the base coat im using its xpresso pearl that comes on a limited edition scion

    heres a video of the base coat

    any opinions would be great id like to get the color figured out asap so i know what im doing with it and can order what i need to do it!!!

    thanks guys!

    ive tryed ording the rootbeer from multiple places... cali... online... a few places out here and no one has none.... the one shop is the place that told me they sent theres back cuz its being discontinued... and he called and coulnt even order any back

    i ordered a quart from coast airbrush like 2 months ago and they called the next day saying its on back order.... so i waited 2 months and called house of kolor 2 days ago for them to tell me that its still on back order and no time frame when it will be available.

    then i talked to a hok supplier in my area and hes the one who told me they had some but had to send it back because hok is discontinuing the whole uk line... he even called them and they said its on back order.... if they are having people send stuff back then hows it on backorder???? im thinking they on sum bullshit

    but i used the planet color rootbeer over the brown metallic base im going to use and it looks like its gonna be what i want

    i mite have maurice do some pinstriping and leafing on it if hes around when i paint it still but he mite not be in the area.... we will see

    heres a video of 3 coats of the planet colors rootbeer over the brown base im using

    im gonna reshoot the whole fender and do tape it off so its got 3/4/5 coats across the fender to see how i want it to come out ive got 3 on the fender and it looks to light for me and not deep enough so we will see

    this panel didnt have clear on it the fuckin fender fell when i moved it so i just sprayed some wax/grease remover on it for the video haha im gonna respray it in the next few days when i get some free time

    candy gold over brown met. ive done it , beautiful root beer color , similiar to the old schwinn rootbeer , it stays brown because the brown base is dominate. maybe only your supplier cant get HOK , google tcp hok i get uk all day long, its a supplier out of San Diego , real fast service , killer prices
