Brompton ultra-thin layer of transparent plastic? What do you call that?
I had a sticker on my Brompton top-tube that proved to be annoyingly stubborn when I tried to take it off. When I did finally manage to scrape it off, I apparently broke a layer of 'transparent skin', even though the metal was completely unscratched.
Now there appears to be a flaky outline where the skin used to be, almost like a road rash, even though the metal is still perfect.
I can't seem to find anything about it on Google, and even the damn shop don't know what I'm talking about.
Am I going crazy?
