Do you normally measure paint thickness? If so, what's a safe range to be in?

Wow, this is great work.

I like this particular job you guys did very much because it shows that this car was daily driven (look at the debris on the dashboard and road salt on the side of the car) and not some garage queen that was only driven on occasion. It gives me hope that, with effort, any car can be made to look good as new (if not better) no matter how old it is or how often it is used.
