Those readings are insane, Muzzer. I didn't think anyone could lay a primer, Base and clear down so thin. A cigarette paper is around 50um!!

Good luck bud.

First thing I'd look into Muzzer is a second opinion on the reads. I'm not saying you're wrong/don't know what you are doing, but if it was me and that was my car from new I'd be pretty peeved that the paint was so thin. It obviously leaves you virtually nowhere to go with any correction!

I'm sure you are probably sadly right on the reads but surely worth a shot. Would open up the options to you if the reads were skewy.

Don't shoot me down here. But have you checked the calibration of it?

Nope but i might give that a shot first.

MDC, would ‘t surprise me to be honest, like i said earlier where the bonnet brace is on the underside, if you look at it sideways on you can see where they missed and it’s just undercoat. No wonder the thing only weighs 1200kg kerbside weight

Every time I use mine I ensure the calibration has been done
This could be your problem, well I hope it is

Wouldn't surprise me if it wasnt though Chongo.

To be fair i've been planning the swirl removal since i bought the car last year and not go round to it but the paint does seem to be ridiculously thin.

Nothing worst than ultra thin paint, but there's always a solution

Why not use Essence then afterwards use Essence plus just to give more filling capability, or Essence then a coating then Essence plus

I might give Essence a go and see what results i get, if it is the result i’m after tyen i’ll leave it alone after that.

We shall see

Your reading is way of, you should only see bare metal at those levels. For thin paint Start with Kamikaze artificial clear coat and top it with miyabi & ism. This way you are not removing anything only adding.

Small update : Did a pass with Menzerna SF4000 (SF3500 now?) and applied two coats of ceramic glass coating. The car still has horrible deep swirls everywhere, its only visible if someone points a torch at it. Very happy with the end result, I dont think I could get this kinda wet finish even with any wax till date.
