Default paint meters

Phil,
Can you give me the low down on paint meters? Are they measuring everything from the metal up, the primer, color, and clear? Or are they measuring just the top coat?
Thanks

the dft combo measures the amount of paint on the car but it won't give you the break down that about $695.

the next one gives you the break down primer/color/clear that one is about $2800.

Phil,
I just received my PC from the group buy you put together - Thanks!
Now many questions
In what order would I use the Menzerna products and with which pads? What would dictate the use of one product alone or in combination with the others? The paint on my car is in good condition with slight swirl marks visible, nothing too bad.
Menzerna Intensive Polish
Menzerna Nano Polish
Menzerna Finishing Glaze
Einszett Glanz (for your last step) *Duh!*
CCS Orange Light Cutting Foam Pad
CCS White Polishing Foam Pad * with the nano polish?*
CCS Blue Finessing Foam Pad
CCS Red UltraSoft Wax/Sealant Foam Pad
Thanks Again!

What is the best way to clean/polish lightly pitted, weathered headlights. There is no yellowing or fading, just slight pits, sandblasting from being a daily driver. They are the E46 polycarbonate lenses. I have a PC and a Flex and paint polishes but no plastic polish other than Plexus.

Hey Phil, I just bought a new car and there seems to be a few somewhat hard deposits of water on the plastic and the rubber hoses.

Is there anything I can do to make it look like perfection again? Especially the rubber hoses because those are the worst.

I just bought Black Wow and Adams In and Out, will these do the job? I also have Meguiars plastic polish.
