A car painted entirely with side-swipe looking paint
order to avoid accusations that your vehicle has damaged
another vehicle's paint. Also works the other way round if
body's made of titanium.

||Titanium can be scratched by materials with a lower
relative hardness, as can many other 'hard' things, like
tungsten and diamond.

||If only a paints' pigment was also friction activated,
could be a convolution of guilts' placement: If a
verdical-paint contained alternate pigments with
properties that'd catalyze; mixed (along with
generated) when sideswipe incidented.
||It is plausibly deniable that my "car" has a paint job. (The quotes are due to the absence of enhanced mobility as traditionally implied by the word).
||The titanium was an afterthought.
||Anyway, it occurs to me that if there is for some
reason a vertical scratch it will be very obvious. It
also occurs to me that paint could include
microscopic numbered glass beads like smart water.

||[MB], I'm normally not one to concede a perfectly good
semantics argument (the more trivial, the better!), but I
gotta hand it to ya, ya got me.
||Some people have relatives who are hard enough to
key a titanium car.
