single stage is color only for topcoat. bacecoat-clearcoat is a dull color with a glossy clear over it. anything called a multistage or 3 stage job, will have metalics, transparent candy coats,etc.

You need to figure out exactly what you want. If the shop is so bad that you have to come on the internet to ask questions instead of having them explain it to you, I would not trust them with my car

since you work at a shop wut would you charge for every stage and do all shops go by stages
It's totally different material for a single stage, we dont even do them. The 3 stage just enhances the 2 stage paint job though and that does cost extra, but not much. Most of the cost is gonna be in the body work and prep.
