I'm ordering the paint today for my EA fairmont Ghia. Silver Slate

I'm thinking about giving it a coat of pearl over the colour, do you guys think Gold pearl would look good?

If someone has a pic of a silver slate EA-ED post a pic up to help people judge please :wink:

If it's already got red in it, why don't you go for a red pearl? Or if you want it to look lighter in the sun, maybe a pink? Don't think I'm taking the piss, mine has a pink pearl through it and it really makes it look a different in the sunlight...

I thought about a red pearl, wouldnt go pink though, would look different but not really to my liking.

I have ordered the gold pearl, should look pretty good

I used a purple pearl over a dark blue on a vp... the guy mixed in 3 grams of pearl was'nt enough to make a huge difference so use more than that.

I'm getting the pearl applied seperately to the colour coat . It will be applied after the colour and before the clear coat. He is mixing in 15 grams so it should look awsome
