    I am looking at a 2015 Challenger Scat Pack. The car is billet silver metallic and looks original. However, I have a device that test the paint thickness and it measured the paint as 7 mils. I checked the thickness of other new Challengers on the lot and the paint was 5 - 6 mils. Does anyone know if the billet silver metallic is a thicker application of paint or has the car been repainted? I also saw a little bit of strangeness in the paint under the hood lip and have included some pictures. Could also just be my paranoia ha ha.

    Paint at the plant is not the best... the tape under the hood is standard stuff... the paint on my 14 runs thick and thin everywhere on the car...

    make sure you do a carfax on the car before buying.

    Carfax is clean but I never rely purely on that but yes I did get a Carfax and I also did other free checks just to make sure things seemed ok. Thanks for the feedback.
