Car looks great!
That's not my car in my avatar. I have the same make/model but mine is black...
Well then, since it's the same make and model the paint might be similar. So in the case with your black car, is your car's black paint considered "soft paint"? Because if it is then it's very likely that mine is as well. But even if it isn't do you think it's best to treat the car's paint as if it is "soft paint"? Thanks again for your time.
I wouldn't say my paint is soft. I generally need UC to get any decent correction out of it. I have marred / scratched it by being careless whlist QD'ing a couple of times, but nothing too major - especially for a black car, which will show everything up.
Now that I think of it, I think the proper term I was looking for (for your paint) is "delicate". I seem to recall a post by Michael Stoops explaining the difference between "delicate" and "soft" paint. If I recall correctly, it was something like:
Delicate = easily scratched / marred by touching the paint;
Soft = easily corrected.
So, as a worst case, you can have delicate paint, which is hard (easily scratched but hard to correct). Unfortunately many modern clear coats fall into this category.
Or, as a best case, you can have "undelicate" (is that a word?) paint which is soft (not easily scratched and easy to correct).
You can't assume that because my paint is hard/soft then yours will be too. That can vary even between cars of the same year/make/model and is something you can never tell until you try.
I think it would be best practice to always assume your paint is soft (I think you mean delicate) - better to be safe than sorry!
