I agree they're impressive to look at and the defect I encountered was not the norm. But to put that kind of a paint job on an automobile would cost a fortune. I understand it is all done by hand just like it would be in a custom paint shop. The process I was talking about that GM uses on F-bodies in Canada is automated and couldn't be too expensive if used on that price range of car. Maybe it's not EPA kosher here.

: Nothing compares to HD metallic paint jobs
: My first new HD was an 80 FXE in Candy apple red. It had a white base, red metallic flake and clear coat so thick that it always looked wet. I sold it 14 years later with at least 50k and no paint chips. Also, no electrical problems, no oil leaks and no frame cracks. I guess it's luck of the draw.

: It did go lots of o-ring chains.
