Ghost paint isnt just pearl, its actually a mix of blending clear and pearl, usually about 80%/20% Its pretty easy to do if you have a good booth with good lighting... If done correctly you wont be able to see the graphics except at certain angles. If they shoot just straight pearl over your clear, it will stand out alot more.

I think a pearl white like the Caddy or Lexus would look fantastic..........

That spoiler should come off and be painted seperatly to finish the stripe under it JMO

I like it...

I like what you've done. Go one more little step.... do something with your bowtie emblems. Black or I've seen posts of billet on SIM. Otherwise what you've done looks great. May I ask what they charged you?

the guy who painted my car , what he explained to me is that ghost striping is done by using the same color as the car . after he sands off the clearcoat on the entire hood he masks off to paint the stripe then he adds pearl to the paint . pearl comes in a powder and in different colors . with mine he used silver pearl powder which will lighten the paint. but I asked him to add some black so it would appear darker in the stripe area instead of lighter . So if you guys were to paint yours the red one would use a red pearl color and add that to the original factory color and I am not sure if it would be darker or lighter . And the abm would do the same your painter would have to show you how it would look on a sample, hope this helps some
