That sounds just like a dual-stage/tri-coat paint! I wondered if the Elite (and Volcano) paints were tri-coats (base-coat + top-coat + tinted-clearcoat) but I couldn't reasonably conclude such from the McLaren Automotive factory tv doc'.I was told to use nail varnish on VR.........that was by a Mclaren guy who went on to explain why Volcano colours cannot be 'touched up'.
Apparently the colour is a lacquer that is dependent on thickness applied for its colour.
Dealer rip-off ..... Don't believe their b.s. that they are the only ones with access to your paint code !!!I was just quoted $225 for a pint of Volcano Orange by a McLaren dealer. Also told it would harden after 3-4 days. There has got to be a better solution by now. Just something close to hide that "white" spot mentioned here .
This subject was also discussed on a 570S thread. There are spectrophotometric instruments that some auto paint shops use to match paints. Seems McLaren doesn't publish codes....Bump... Still looking for VR touch up paint or paint code...
