I thought I would post a vid of the tests we have done on the new paint finishes.
First we tried a drop test to see if the paint would chip off. We dropped an earcup from a first floor window to see what would happen. On impact the driver popped out of the cup but the paintwork survived even better than I expected. On examination the paint only had a small scuff where it hit and after a bit of a wipe with some polish that went away. There is also some footage of the adhesion tests we did to make sure the paint was stuck to the plastic properly.
