Default Paint, Root Beer.

Hey guys, I am saving and preping for paint and I have a question about colors. I have seen 2nd gens out there that have that "root Beer" color all the time and I have also seen black that changes to root beer depending on light. Do you guys know what color is it or how to make the color change like that. If you guys don't know what I mean I have a pic below. Is it just the sun on black. It looks like an undercoat maybe.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.





COLOR IS ROOT BEER METALLIC!!!

Couldn't you take that pic into a shop and ask them if they can do it?

I don't want to ask them and have them think they know what they are doing just so I can waste the money. I want to make sure that I can tell them exactly how to do it. I hear so many bad things about paint shops but that is my only option. but that might help me find out cuz they might know.

HAHAHAHA yes now that is what I like to hear. Do you have any idea what combo would be used to make the blck/brown or would it just be black to brown pearlescent?

My thoughts exactly.

Post up some pics if you get yours painted man. I'd love to see the turnout.
