New Mahindra Thar with ‘scratchproof’ PU paint

Mahindra Thar has been one of the most discussed topic on internet in the last couple of months. Mahindra launched this most awaited product in the market couple of months ago and ever since then, the response from buyers has been overwhelming. The demand for this SUV has increased so much that Mahindra had announced that they will be increasing production and the Thar is currently sold out till May 2021. Just like in the case of older Thar, aftermarket accessories for new-gen Thar has also started to arrive in the market and we have already seen couple of modified examples too. Here we have a 2020 Mahindra Thar that gets a very unique treatment than others. This is probably India’s first Thar to get s a PU bullet liner paint job.

The video has been uploaded by Vinay Kapoor on his youtube channel. The video shows a brand new Mahindra Thar SUV that has got an PU bullet liner paint job. It looks entirely different from the regular paint job that we see on our cars. This PU coating bullet liner leaves a matte finish on the car which looks like a matte paint job or wrap.

It may look like a regular paint or wrap job but it is much more than that. It is basically a chemical that is sprayed on to the car just like paint. The main benefit of this bullet liner is that it saves the car from scratches and even protects the body from dents. The vlogger even shows a small clip that explains how strong this paint actually is. It shows a person hitting the bonnet of car with a hammer. Even after hitting multiple times, no major dents can be seen and the paint has also not chipped away.
