I have this model of a speaker driver but just can't solve the issue of adding a material as original as in image to the thin Transparent film

Try duplicating the surface in KeyShot, then offsetting it jut a tiny amount.  Then you can add the thinfilm to the new surface.

Hi brahmzxc.
Bills method is what I would do as well.
If you can share your scene and current status it will be easier for us to help in more details :)

There are a lot of tranparent materials in the library, drag and drop, let it cook for a minute and see what you like. There are also a lot of options in the online cloud library as well. You could use the thinfilm material if you desire a view-dependant colorization of the film.

Another approach I like is to use the metallic paint material and add a color gradient to the clear coat material.
