What is orange peel? I hear it referred to all the time regarding clear coat finishes
Yeah but your old Dodge van is still running!:tisk: My dad still has his 1978 Chev "Bonanza" truck, two tone brown in pretty good shape. No problems with the paint here, must be those hot California days. I didn't know Lexus goes through such a process to get it right, Cadillac goes through some stages as well? My 1991 brochure says they put "6 coats of protectants, sealers, primers and paint cover the 2 sided galvanized steel, as well as a zinc coating." I would call this "going above and beyond" as well.kcnewell said:To tell the truth....It was a G.M. '78 pickup truck. If it was a Chrysler product it wouldn't have been worth the hassle. I mean, Who cares about the paint on a P.O.S.?
( My Dodge van was built in Canada!.....Maybe THAT explains it! ):histeric:
I wonder what BMW or Benz does.Katshot said:I'm talking the paint process itself. Lexus uses a table that they secure the car to and it rotates and rolls in such a way that the surfaces of the car are never at the same plane so as to continually keep gravity "searching" for the direction to move the paint while drying. This allows the paint to be put on "wetter" and heavier. Without this drying table, the paint would have runs all over it.
LOL......something you don't want on your car! I hate orange peel. My Eldo needs a new paint job...but she don't have any peel that I can see.Chuck C said:What is orange peel? I hear it referred to all the time regarding clear coat finishes
