    Can was delivered yesterday to the dealership. Thanks Earl for the updates. Unfortunately the car was delivered early AM so no unloading pics. This is what the dealer sent me

    Just did a quick once over and found a concerning issue with the paint. Not sure if this is transport damage but it's on both sides or maybe the paint bubbled? looks like a scrape? Not sure how that could of been released from OC?

    I'm 100% happy with the color and it really pops in person. Can't wait to see it in the sun.

    Great looking car. That's some of that fantastic S550 paint quality. Those are a couple of snot bubbles in the paint that got popped after drying. It should have never left the plant looking like that.

    Make sure you get the Full History Vehicle Visibility Report before the dealer notifies Ford of the sale. After that. it will no longer be available.

    Concerning the paint damage, make sure whoever repairs the damage is aware of the composite plastic fenders and hood. They may require special procedures.

    Sorry to see the car arrived damaged, that is never a good thing.

    Make sure the PDI person checks the routing on the drivers side heater hose. A lot of cars are showing up with the problem.

    I would post some pictures, but this forum has such ridiculously small file size limits that is almost impossible to post any decent pictures or pdf files.

    If you send me your e-mail address, I will send them to you. PM me.

    Nice car. Sad Ford would release it like that.

    Wow. I know these are highly coveted right now, but I would not want to accept that level paint damage. It will only get worse (at least in that area). Beautiful color though!

    Yeah, I wouldn't be feeling good about that paint issue. I would have the car thoroughly examined (you might want to examine it yourself) by the dealership to ensure there are no other paint areas of concern. Do it ASAP! Then talk to the dealership about paint repairs. It could be a relatively minor repair, or something more extensive. I agree that it sucks that Ford could allow this to get out of the factory. QC can kill a company. Or make it a king.

    I haven't officially taken possession of the car yet. I am prepared to do a through walk around before I do and a solid plan on how this is going to fixed.

    Agree. No excuse for $hitty production work like that and paying that much for a vehicle.

    Embarrasing but not surprising Ford would release a paint job that way.

    That there is 100% normal Ford quality paint. I suspect there after many hidden areas that are worse. Sucks to pay that much money for shit work, but that is how Ford rolls.

    The dealer and a local body shop can clean it up and make it look good, but it will be worse corrosion protection than factory paint.

    The hood and fenders are a composite plastic.
