ALA Scratch & Dent

Post by babysnakes » Tue May 29, 2018 1:55 pm

Just a quick heads up.
As stated in another post, i unfortunately got a stone chip on the leading edge of my bonnet.
This policy does NOT cover it.

My question would be ‘when you say leading edge is it on a horizontal part or the FRONT edge’ - possible grounds for unclear terms???

Hmmm, difficult one. It's about a centimetre up from the very edge of the bonnet at the front.

Did you get the paint thickness measured, as in the other thread I mentioned.?

It was around 0.1mm near the chip & 0.2mm elsewhere.
I used a Sealey TA091 Thickness tester (no idea how accurate)

And I presume that’s within tolerance?

I have no idea what the paint specs are supposed to be thickness wise.
