no its not glitter spray, its just got silver flakes mixed with the clear coat, kinda like mettallic paint, It looks so much better in real life, its real weird i couldnt capture it on camera, but the paint looks real good. mabe ill take a 360 degree video in the sun and it will pick up how good it looks.

o well, thanks for looking.

You can go to any paint shop and just say i want this and this or whatever. look in the phonebook for autopaint. It will cost less than $200 hopefully. If you want the flakes just ask them if they do flakes mixed into the clearcoat, thats basically all it is. make sure the flakes are the small ones though, if there the big ones they will just make the clearcoat all messy looking, and then youll need more clearcoat.

hope this helps and thanks again for the compliments.
