metal flake question

Not a big rush at the moment, but I need to replace the decals on my boat. I could do it simple and go with the original but I've always loved the original S&S. My first MC was a grey with black metal flake. I've Googled it and it appears that spraying metal flake isn't that complicated. My only concern is how thick it would be if I added a coat of black over my existing gel? I know that it would be even thicker to do metal flake and several coats of clear gel. I assume that there would be a ridge on the bottom of the stripe, but maybe it could be sanded and buffed down. I would love to put the S&S on my Maristar one day.
I don't think that I would tackle the project on my own, but this guy did it:

If anyone has photoshop, feel free to add decals.
