    Ebay has ultrasonic paint thickness testers, just make sure it is compatible with use on fiberglass/plastic or other substrates, not just metal. Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge | eBay

    or,

    Defelsko PosiTector 200 Series Ultrasonic Coating Thickness Gauges - GlobalTestSupply.com


    And, you could try going to either an auto auction house or reputable auto paint shop and see if they would measure your paint thickness. Lots of places like this have them for their own use.

    The temptation to make a funny about your "pain" thickness is great but I'll resist........

    I don't like making plans for the day. The word "premeditated" is not useful when it gets thrown around a courtroom.
