Long time lurker, but finally decided to create a profile on account of becoming a new (well to me) owner of a 2012 Pearl White Ex. I have literally scoured through all 12 pages of this detailing section, and I could not find what it is I was looking for. If the answer exists in here, I apologize! Now, I use to detail for a living a couple years ago, so I am of course looking forward to letting my OCD take over and spending a weekend perfecting my car and prepping for winter. My question is what are the properties of working with the Pearl White? I tried google as well, but to no avail. Is it a tri-coat? I only ask because I've read on here that the Pearl White was coated differently on account of the pearl and actually tends to be "harder" than some of the other colors. Is there any truth to this? Thanks!
Welcome to the forum. There's a few of us Mid-Westerners who meet up now and then (Ohio/Indiana/Michigan,) so maybe we can meet up some fine day. Love that PWP--it's a tri-coat with base, top coat, and clear coat, but I've never heard it described as anything other that SOFT..., in that you must keep the bug cleaned off or they'll eat into the paint.
I've had the car a week and literally have not seen another one in my area; it'd be awesome to meet up with other fellow CRZ owners. That being said, I appreciate the response! I'll make sure to still do a small test area to learn even more about what I'm working with. Thanks again!
