    I'd like to try this effect on the bottom half of the car, would I use candy over white for this, or just plain colour?

    This one looks like it is design in white then candy over that then Next design cone the same way.
    But Low rider cars can had as many as 40 layers of different paint types to get the graphic design they envision.

    Hard to tell but the purple/orange stripes look like candy over silver, the others candy over white. The black base might even have a little pearl, I don't know, It kind of looks like it right near the base of the b pillar, that could be lighting though.
    The blue may be just color, it doesnt seem to show much shift where its fades cross over other colors and looks a bit flatter than the other colors.

    The lower half of the car is done with pearl. The upper half uses flake and candies.

    Wicked might have this pegged. Idk
    The only part on the bottom that reeeally looks like candy over white to me is the orange, it's got a lot of darkened areas and some that almost look cream colored, which makes me think candy over white. That could be the lighting though.
    The blue looks too even and too flat to be candy.

    There is. Painting these is easy. Masking them off is a PITA.
