I will be spraying a Maroon colored Wanda base coat with pearls that has already been mixed in it. The question is should I still add some pearl with SPI Intercoat before Universal Clear? If so, what changes would I see? The person that mixed it said the pearls should go in the base but I'm not so sure now. This will be an overall paint job on my Corvette. I did sprayed a motorcycle helmet with this base then cleared over it. It looks good but it seems to me that the pearls didn't pop as much in the sun as the pearl paint on my motorcycle. This will be the first time I will have used pearl and I would like to do it right the first time. I know that I could buy some Intercoat and try it myself but this would be all that I would use it for and I didn't want to waste any money if I didn't need to. Any help would be appreciated.
