Problems w factory paint!!!??
Posted 03 April 2017 - 08:34 AM
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.

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. image.jpeg 118.87KB 0 downloads Here's a same photo I had but why not a durable rust, sound and small stone impact resistant finish underneath? image.jpeg 136.89KB 0 downloads

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?
