Default Re: How Far Enough?

I don't know if they use any special paint on commercial aircraft, but those things are covered in paint chips, especially the nose, leading edges, all the usual places you'd expect them. Peeling usually comes about from some sort of leaking hydraulic fluid and what would you call it... Some sort of blistering or deformation appears near exhausts, engine, anti-ice, air-conditioning packs etc. Future 'superpaint' - sure why not!
