I'm thinking about getting a new ride, a 2003/04. I don't want to keep the regular stock paint, but then again I don't want to repaint the whole ride if its got clean ass brand new paint from the factory. So really my question is, is it possible to just get it wetsanded down a bit, then re-clearcoat it with some flake in it? I just don't want it to look like factory paint, then again I don't want to take the cheap way out. Thanx...

Dependin on the color of the car I would flake it....unless the flake is the same color as the car. If I was in your situation here is what I would do....scuff the clear and get some Ice Pearl or some type of tight pearl and mix it in your clear. On the newer 03/04 cars I think Pearl would look better since the newer cars have more jagged edges and smooth edges (ie. Honda's, Lincolns and so on)
