I need your help!!!!

I just picked up 2075 from the dealer. I needed to get my drivers side quarter panel repainted due to a sloppy job by ford.

It looks worse. The entire panel looks like it has an orange peel texture. I spoke to the paint manager and He assures me that this is normal for dark colors and that after 30 days I need to bring it back to them to have the orange peel effect buffed out.

Is he blowing smoke up my a** or is he telling me the truth? Should I have them repaint it immediatly?

WHY DONT YOU ASK THE SHOP TO WET SAND IT,AND BUFF IT OUT ,TRY DO SALVAGE FACTORY PAINT. IT WILL SUCK IF YOU HAVE TO START PAINTING A NEW CAR,ESPECIALLY IF THE HAVE TO BLEND THE PAINT SOME WERE.IT WILL CREEP UP ON YOU DOWN THE ROAD.IT WILL FADE DIFFERENT.GOOD LUCK!

Upon delivery of my Bullitt #1182, the rear left quarter, rear trunk lid, and rear bumber cover had to be repainted. The dealer that did it did fantastic job. Absolutely no orance peel. They need to reshoot it on a day that is not so humit and use a different mix so it will dry faster.

Thanks for the reply

The quarter panel has already been painted.

I wastold by the paint shop manager that they need to wait 30 days before they can wetsand/buff the paint. Is this normal or can they buff the paint sooner?

Nope, you do not need to wait for 30 days to rub the car. You want to wait 30 or 40 days to rub the car a second time though. This is because the paint will suck down and you will start to see sand scratches and sometimes body work that is under the paint. They can wait to sand the paint, but most shops rub the car before going back to the customer.

Hope this helps.
