Whatever it is it's rediculously thin.

The clearcoat layer may as well not exist on the Alabaster Silver, it's full of little scratches.

I'm having a go a rectifying some of it tomorrow, filling in come of the light scratches with some Autoglym Super Resin Polish which should go in the scratches clear with a bit of working and then sealing it with some Meguiars Tech Wax 2.0. :rolleyes:

I work with microns, tinfoil is 12microns thick! so id say the paint is prob more than that! If someone wants to sent me a paint chip id be happy to test thickness with a micrometer!
