          Bob - Seems really thick, I couldn't believe it.

          QB - I have no idea TBH.

            Is it constant over the car?

              Nup, just an average but the difference between panels is minimal.

                That would have to be pearl paint for sure.

                  The paint is called Crystal Black Silica if that helps.

                    I got 240's on my wife's fiat 500 in pearl white and I thought that was good.

                      After reading the NASIOC forum, it appears they have a tri-coat as QB mentioned.

                      Base -> Mid -> Clear.

                            I had two Navara dual cabs next to each other today, one black and one silver. Both purchased at the same time and place.

                            The black measured 90-100 in most areas, while the silver had more like 150-160 over the whole car.

                            Just thought the difference was significant enough to mention

                                Make: Mitsubishi
                                Model: Pajero
                                Year: 2009
                                Average Paint Depth range (Microns): 73 (roof) - 112
                                Paint Type: CoB

                                Make: Subaru
                                Model: Forester
                                Year: 2006
                                Average Paint Depth range (Microns): 100 (roof) - 267
                                Paint Type: CoB

                                Both front guards on the Subaru are oddly high compared to the rest of the vehicle, 267 and 225. Car has been owned since new so I know there's been no repairs in those areas. If I disregard those two panels the next highest is 190.

                                Neither have ever been detailed other than what the dealers may have done pre delivery.
