I once read an article in Corvette Quarterly magazine about how they use different primer colors for various body colors. At first it sounded neat that they used white primer under light colors like white and yellow, and they used red primer under various shades of solid and metallic red paints. Then the article explained that this was all done so if the body color paint was applied too thin the primer wouldn't show through and they wouldn't have to repaint the car. And this is done on brand new Corvettes. Nice guys, huh?

The auto industry uses our technology for paint durability measurements (film thickness).

We have issued two press releases and have contacted Ford Senior Management on the
impact of outsourcing paint applications process and quality control to the Paint Suppliers.

Press Release 1
New Books Reveal Vehicle Paint Quality Flaws Associated with Outsourcing


Press Release 2
Billions Discovered for Recovery by Automakers

Two books have been released:
Basic Guide - For the Consumer
Technical Guide - For The Automaker and Auto Dealer

"MAKING IT RIGHT'
Why your Car Payments
are lasting longer than your
FACTORY PAINT JOB

Research data on the Mustang in certain years from the factory shows they were
released to the automaker, auto dealer and consumer below Ford's paint thickness
specifications.

Low film thickness results in paint peeling, stone chipping and body rusting.

Paint applied too thick will crack.

The majority of Mustangs in certain years were released below the required thickness specification.

We are advocating a "Truth in Finish Disclosure" to protect automakers, auto dealers and consumers.

You may want to advise your auto dealer on the book and do a search inside the book for additional information.
