Plausibly deniable car paint job

It wasn't me, but maybe it wasn't you either.

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

       //lower relative hardness// as distinct from lower absolute hardness?

       If only a paints' pigment was also friction activated, then it could be a convolution of guilts' placement: If a vehical's verdical-paint contained alternate pigments with properties that'd catalyze; mixed (along with squished-heat 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.
