This is for the people who like to create unique paint jobs using metallic and pearlescent.

1)Go to LS Customs

2)Select and purchase the Matte color you like

3)Go to metallic selection but do not purchase anything

4)Exit respray menu and buy license plate variation

5)Go back to primary color and select pearlescent color

6)Have fun mixing combos

Cool combinations
★Matte black pearlescent Pink
★Matte black pearlescent Midnight blue
★Matte black pearlescent Yellow

Few things,
You CAN'T DO IT IN A HANGER OR CEO OFFICE.
You DO NOT have to use plates, you can use ANYTHING that changed i.e bumper etc. I have yanktons on most of my cars so changing the plate is not advisable.
My method is Matte>Metallic>Secondary>Primary Pearl
So that means i change the secondary instead of the paint.

Just go to metallic selection and back?
I use an old method where you need to change the lights and then go to metallic selection, hold up/down few seconds at the metallic selection and while you doing that press B and quick go to pearlescent.

Only works in lsc for some reason, R* decided mixing paint textures was exceeding the games fun and removed alot if it along with 3d paints and crew color finishes a long time ago.

Also you dont need to change anything on the car just hover in metallic section for few seconds or scroll all the way through metallics and hit back and pearl will be applyable.

They only patched it for doing it in Ceo mod shop,Avenger and MOC.
The steps are exactly as it was before, just doing it in Los Santos.
I just did it with scramjet inside the avenger :wink:

This works since the release, because of that you find vids very hard.
It's good that OP post it again for newer player.

At 3.) you have to scroll a few times before cancel

  1. Equip matte paint
  2. Click metallic and scroll about 5-6 items
  3. Change anything in any other option (convenience is to add a crew logo/change secondary/trim/ect)
  4. Go back to primary and change pearlecent

No they didn't I was trying this at Benny's and LSC I rarely use the vehicle mod shop and the vehicle mod shop in my avenger
 
Plus it's really hard to mess this glitch up you would have to be a noob to do that

This also works on the Metal paints too so you can add pearl to gold paint and the other colors as well.

I used crew logo for this
Equip mat or met al paint
Go to metalic back out (No need stolling or waiting)
Back out again
Go to crew logo and equip
Go back to primary paint and go to pearl
Remove the crew logo when done
