Faults in BA paintwork

Just wondering how many owners of new BA's have had problems with faults in paintwork on their cars?

My XR6T arrived with a spot on the bonnet where a chip in the base coat had been painted over with colour and then clear plus another on the RH front guard where something like a blob of dirt has been painted over leaving a bump in the finish :-(

My dealer is going to fix these faults (re-spray of both panels) so all should be ok eventually as long as they get the colour match right.

Read my response to the GT paintwork thread. Relevant to your situation.

biggrin Re: Faults in BA paintwork

Just an update on faulty paintwork on my BA.

Picked the car up from my dealer today after two days in their paintshop.
Bonnet and RH front guard re-sprayed and what can I say!!
The colour match is so bl**dy good I'd have to call it perfect and the finish is better than the original factory paint - and yes I do know what I'm looking at as I used to be a spray painter myself.
No overspray anywhere and they even vacuumed inside the car and blacked the tyres

Even better they did the job without removing the bonnet or guard - just masked the rest of the car so the paintwork inside the engine bay (including bolts) was not damaged.

Gotta be happy with this Ford dealer.
