Checking the colour

In order to see whether the machine involved in accidents, you can use a special device – the thickness of paint coatings. This unit defines the thickness of the paint which is deposited on the item. Lean the device to the necessary parts of the car body, after which the display shows the paint thickness to check the details. Typically, the thickness of the applied paint on the factory car varies from 80 to 150 microns. If the item was repainted for the paint, paint thickness will be much greater, about 200 microns. There are great values in those cases when in the process of repair putty was used. Also the device can display, on the contrary, a very small amount. This means that after painting has been done several times the procedure of abrasive polishing, or painting technology was incorrect, without the use of soil.

For example, between the bonnet and wing there are gaps of a certain size, and in the case that the sizes of these clearances on both sides do not match each other, the car has undergone a poor repair, perhaps after the accident. To check the gap in car doors need to open them and shake up and down to determine end play in hinges.
