Does anybody know if the paint on the new GL1800 is a lacquer or a urethane? Thanks. Brian.

It may be a eurethane, or maybe just an enamel, but I know it ain't a laquer. it scratches and dings too easy to be a laquer. It is definitely something softer.

It is an acrylic urethane clear coat over a basecoat. Hope this helps. Laquer would melt if gas spilled on it. Laquer is old school.
