Default What Ceramic Coating Can't Protect Against

You may have seen my thread on ceramic coating my bikes and Mary's truck. It is here- http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2072082

I am very pleased with how well the ceramic coating has been keeping them looking good, and very easy to clean.

However, sometime in the last week, a rock, or piece of metal, broke thru the ceramic, the clear coat, the paint, the primer and right into the ABS.

I don't think a protective film would have stopped this either...although it might have made it smaller.








I've personally never had good luck with using touch-up paint. But I think I'm the variable there. At some point I'll ask a friend of mine, who's a body & paint man, to take care of it.

No hurry, it's not metal underneath, so nothing is going to rust.

"Old School" touch up paint =....fingernail polish. Easy to mix, cheap and durable.

Yeah, now that you mention that...I have had much better results with that than I ever have had with the HD touch up paint!
