General Motors to go plastic…as in paint, that is
The process, in which a body-coloured film is used instead of paint for a particular vehicle part, has already been tested on the stone shields for the Chevrolet SSR (pictured), HHR, and the rocker panels for the Cadillac STS-V and Buick Lucerne.
Advantages of the new technology include greater resistance to damage (e.g., stones, collision, etc.), scuffing, and—obviously—no paint “orange peel” (uneven texturing of paint makes the surface resemble the skin of an orange.)
