worth buying to check if cars had paint or they ****! Gunson | 77067 | Paint Thickness Tester
No to be honest. You will need something like this..
CM-8828 Paint Thickness Gauge (PD8)
Paint Thickness Gauges are commonly used for measuring the thickness of paint, anodising, galvanising, zinc plating, chrome and/or powder coatings.
The CM-8828 is a sophisticated yet simple to use tool that can enable the user to quickly determine previous repairs that may have been carried out to a vehicles bodywork. The gauge works on both steel and aluminium panels switching between either mode automatically. Often paint repairs are not easily or quickly identified when relying just on eyesight and/or fingers. Essential knowledge before committing to paint restoration work or when buying used vehicles!
Gauges are supplied pre-calibrated, with case, batteries, instructions, 4 x thickness shims, and steel / aluminium check pieces.
