I couldn't afford the real Kandy back in the day, so we mixed "Plum Crazy" purple with some clear and shot it over silver. We threw in some left over flake and pearl in that budget mixture too. Shit was cool to me, but that was back in the like '92. Had the car for about a yrs, but then the car got wrecked so I don't know how it would have held up.
I asked this same question a few years ago and a couple people told me they had tried it also with good results.
:dunno:

IT WILL WORK, THAT'S WHAT A KANDY BASICLY IS, BUT YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT YOU NEED TO TOP COAT WITH A GOOD HIGH SOLIDS CLEAR TO PROTECT YOUR COLOR..... HOPE THIS HELPS ... PEACE...............................

Hell no, not even in the same ballpark.... or universe for that matter. I cant believe you said that. :0

Thats like saying a Geo Tracker is the same "pretty much" the same as a Phantom.

Yea, they are both modes of transportation.... but come on now. :biggrin:
