A description of what and how you did it and possibly a supplier so that anybody else interested could have a try, would be good. 

Just putting a picture up like that really tells us nothing.

That looks awesome dude. Is it like a normal black base coat then a special clear coat with metallic flakes in it?

I didn't know that I had to say how I did it but....

All I did was scotched it down, sprayed with gloss black and then the flip paint over. Which you just build ye layers up until you get the right amount. Going over the top makes it look daft. Onced dried and lacquered, go over it with 2000 to get all the little bits out it may have.
Buff it back to shiney shiney and jobs a good en

Paint supplier is autopaints in st helens

It was never a requirement to do so, just a question. But you definitely attracted some interest,which is obvious from the replies you got.  So why not ??

It's good to share..   :) :)

What's the point of posting this, if you know people will want to do this to their car too? Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Take it as a compliment that people like this enough to want this in their car.

Perhaps you can be different and unique and just not post at all about it?

Like I said. Didn't mean anything by it.
I posted it to give people a idea of what can be done with a little imagination
