My Ford ZR paint is now starting to peel. What have people done to remedy the defective paint? Did Ford ever compensate? What have you done to get it repaired or repainted?
-I'd like to know what others have done to rectify the situation. Where they got it repainted, Ford paint or aftermarket, I assume its now "Ultra White".?.
Thanks.

I heard recently that it was because they didn't use primer on the white cars? Only way to fix it that I know is to strip it and re shoot it. You can shoot over the existing paint but there is a chance the new stuff will peel just the same.

Strip and re-shoot. I bought my crystal white cobra from a guy in California and it was a cali-car its whole life. I'm sure the so-cal sun didn't help much, but it has the same problem. Once I progress further on the build, a complete paint job is in order.

WOW, thanks for all the great info. I greatly appreciate it. Re-spray can be accomplished a few different ways, Im assuming. Is multiple layers of paint and clear coat provide an impressive finished product? or does a simple paint job give OE looking finish?
Thanks.

In the same boat :( I hate you Ford! Money I could be spending on a blower.... that's actually what I was saving for and then this crap happens.
I might do a wrap. Ever consider that? Cheaper than a great paint job. From what I hear wrapping is legit.
