Re: Premature Paint fading on wing?
if the part is factory fitted, it wasn't painted by ford.....a problem with outsorcing
Many minor componants are produced these days outside the car makers factory. The person making them, makes X number and paints them as per order. Unfortunatley, the best way to paint Red is Clear over base, but most contracted companies will paint any solid colour as a solid and not go COB.
As stated the pigments in red are most susceptible to detioration, you can reduce this dramatically by choosing COB (clear over base)
If the PART manufacturer has gone solid colour rather than COB, it will be the first item to show ageing.
