Clear Coat??

All cars from GM come out of the factory with a clear coat. Most of the paint is what is termed as a two stage paint job. Base color with a clear overcoating.

I have been checking on Car Covers, fabric would be my choice, one can obtain a Mazda Miada cover which will fit. But, you may want to wait till they made the custom car cover for the Solstice so the mirrors will fit properly.

A Miata cover on my Solstice...that's like putting a potato sack on Christy Brinkley! :)

a miata cover will be a heck of a lot more tight around the car since this car is a little bigger.

And a lot wider. I'd borrow one before I bought it, or at least make sure you can return it. (The cover, not Christie.)

Potato sack, indeed. :lol:

Clearcoat

I believe that clear coat is applied over enamel paint which probably covers all domestic autos. Lacquer would not have clear coat.
