Customized paint job

Hi guys,

I just joined this forum. my name is Caz and i am living in Dubai. I am a professional super-bike rider and found recently a new sponsor whose main colors are black and gold.
Now my question: I need to paint my bikes in the corporate colors. I was thinking about a glossy black as the main color and to get a golden shimmer on top. my problem is that I really don't know how to get this shimmer done...

Any ideas ???

Thx in advance

Perhaps you should visit an automotive or painting forum, you'll find mostly home improvement information here. Since this is you main sponsor, can't they help you with getting your bikes refinished?

There a 2 stage process, for just painting visit a paint supply store and they will give you all the supplies, which the process will be what is referred to as basecoat clearcoat first apply black base 2-3 coats let dry, tack off, Then 1 coat clear with metallic Flakes added, then top coat with 2 coats of straight clear.
