Anyone else having issues with the paint on their bumper or anywhere else on their car?
I have a 2013 gotta have it green boss. And I have noticed over time that there is a black line forming on the edge of my front bumper near the wheel well. Almost looks like they never cleared the edges. But the black line is becoming more and more noticable and it's getting to the point that it looks like the paint is ready to chip. I have heard the bumper is originally black before it is ever painted. I have been to the dealership where I purchased it new and they have taken pictures. Now I'm just waiting to see what it said. I was just curious if anyone else has any issues with their paint. My car is garage kept and parked from November - April. So she is well taken care of. I believe this is a factory issue wth the paint.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I would post pics, but I am not sure how to go about that.

Could this be a sandblasting effect? Tires are wider than wheel wells and if you drive on gritty roads? No problem with mine, believe too there's a clear coat over finish. Might be a road tar buildup, may come right off with say thinner or polishing compound. Sandblasting would leave kind of tiny pock marks where the paint has been removed and the existing paint is still intact.

Thank you for getting back to me. Unfortunately I don't think that's the case. I wash my car once a week and she is clay bar and waxed 2-4x a year. She is always clean.. I think it was somethjng to do with the clear coat and paint. Looks like they didn't clear the edges. I've tried cleaning it without any harsh chemicals and I don't want to make it any worse or any more noticeable.

Rodger that on the paint. I'm very disappointed with the fact the trunk wheel well is still primer only and gunk spread, underneath is just primer and skimpy paint within the wheel well areas.

Hood pin sets were bubbling hood paint because of the aluminum hood, steel screws and scuff plates (dissimiliar metals) and/or retainer stanchions. Guess I'm lucky, the outside paint seems to be flawless as long as you.dont start looking underneath or lift the trunk carpet. Engine compartment is painted but guess, I can't recall in the 60's or so the engine compartments were painted a semi-gloss black, maybe not all.

Can you post a few pics of the affected paint areas of your concern? It would help us to give you our opinions of what it might be. Are you the original owner of your Boss 302?
