    i don't think it looks red. Looks like an organish/pink like salmon color or something.

Was actually wondering if you can add that powder pearl to the paint??

    Thats one thing I don't like about the black, even touching the door handle shows up on it lol.
    When you mix colors like the Atomic Orange the pearl actually goes into the paint itself. Alot of the new metallics have pearl in them like \he Dodbe Brilliant Black Crystal. Actually the powder flake goes in a binder/balancer mix with dupont. With the PPG Global BC you add the pearl flakes in 895 Blender. When you ghost it you lay the black, let it dry, tape and tack it, then use the pearl mid coat(spays on like base coat). after that you clear it. the pearl is a mid coat suspended below the clear and above the base.
    Never heard of anyone putting pearl flake in clear. Only thing I add to clear is black when I smoke tail lights.

    Looks like Torch Red to me.

    Example from google images in a bright light.

    Torch Red has a good amount of orange to it.
