  1. I'm a Ford guy, but am going to continue holding their feet to the fire on this issue. Last year I took pics at cleveland auto show, 5 of 6 mustang hoods had paint/sealing issues at front/side hems... had someone forward them to AAI, maybe it helped- the front lips on all the mustangs looked good this year- but several still had the paint blistering on the side hems, the black one has blistered halfway around the edge- barely visible when hoods closed, but creeping to the top... pics/vin in case someone at ford wants to track it down and diagnose what the heck is going wrong at AAI... I personally still dont buy the iron contamination/mastic boilout/e-coat boil out excuses ive read...still think its lack of deburring/painting a razorblade edged panel expecting paint not to fail when it moves due to expansion... I would suggest if they decide to look at it, dont return to AA/i, have a paintshop/engineering group affiliated with unaffected models dissect it and see whats really going on here. there were still a couple that had what feels like dirt in the paint, showing at a minimum, the prep cleanliness should be looked at- possibly this is just crap that didnt get cleaned before paint- in any event, ford MUST do a better job. this years displays in my opinion still showed the lowly hyundais as perfect, toyota a close second. all the others very good... ford I'd say is good except when it comes to hoods- more on other models to follow sorry pics are so bad- flash with all the bright lights/contrast makes them look filthy or blurry- some spots you can barely see, others look like they were off roaded...no, the folks detailing the cars at the show werent that sloppy, the least little smuges with a flash 2" away look like it was just driven off a salty road or somthing- the cars were clean as youd see at any car show the blue mustang wasnt horrible, but the blistering is still starting there: vins on here- if you cant read it, fullsize pics are here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/83232178@N06/sets/
