Coats of Paint

I live in Australia, and when I was a kiddy of great insight and renown, one of my many idiot brother in laws, to one of my half sisters (hurrah for crazy familes) - well he worked for Arnotts Biscuits as a big knob executive, and he was telling me that the big trucks had about 20 or 25 coats of paint... a primer, base and then a colored, then a clear, and then a colored, then a clear, and then a colored, then a clear etc.

And the trucks had a beautiful deep lusterous coat of paint., that looked really good.

They were works of art actually.....

But the company being run by backward Australians (Good little Vegemite sucking Aussies) - never thought to grow themselves, and they were taken over and the brand is now marketed into other countries around the asia pacific regeion....

But the trucks had really nice paint jobs..
