Paint on excursion

Our firm licensed the patented technology that Ford used for their paint durability analysis of the Ford Excursion. The issue with most Excursions is paint applied below Ford's minimum paint thickness specifications that should not have been released to the market. Conusmers have been active and in 10 states have taken action in Small Claims Court or outside of it and the results have been that Ford has compensated the owners. We have published Ford's lack of compliance about later years Excursion on page 118 in our research publication:

Our firm supplied Ford the paint durability technology that was used at the Ford Kansas City facility that manufactured the Mazda Tribute. Essentially all Tributes during that time period were paint below Ford's minimum paint thickness specifications taht was used for quality control This information on the 2003 Mazda Tribute may be found in the book that we published on page 47.

Does ford treat the under carriage metal for rust prevention ? I have an 08 ranger. Thanks, Jim

ford coats the undercarriage with a red paint which acts as a anti rust shield the paint is covered by paint job for your car at the last parts of the assembly line at most ford factories so yes ford does put the undercoating for all newer fords :)

Have 2005 BA MK11 shockwave blue falcon,paint flaking on bonet & under rear window,what should i do ?

You may want to reference the Ford Australian Forum Boards.

There has been active discussion on owners being compensated
for particular model years due to a fault with the Shockwave paint.

On a separate note, the auto industry uses our technology for paint durability measurements (film thickness).

We have issued two press releases and have contacted Ford Senior Management on the impact of outsourcing paint applications process and quality control to the Paint Suppliers.

Press Release 1
New Books Reveal Vehicle Paint Quality Flaws Associated with Outsourcing

Press Release 2
Billions Discovered for Recovery by Automakers

We have released two books -
Basic Guide - For the Consumer
Technical Guide - For The Automaker and Auto Dealer

Why your Car Payments
are lasting longer than your

We do have research data on various automakers vehicle models from the factory which shows they were released to the automaker, auto dealer and consumer below Ford's paint thickness specifications.

Low film thickness results in paint peeling, stone chipping and body rusting.

Paint applied too thick will crack.

We are advocating a "Truth in Finish Disclosure" to protect automakers, auto dealers and consumers.

You may want to advise your auto dealer on the book and do a search inside the book on either Amazon or our website for additional information.

1998 F 150 regular cab paint peeling problems

Ford will not assist on a 1998 vehicle because of the age.
You can primer and spot paint but it would probably do better if you sanded it down first.

Paint peeling on my ford f-150

Yes there was a couple of manufacturers who had that problem over the years, I've heard everything from wrong primer, different coating on bare metal before priming, to improper prepping of bare metal before primer, but either way, a good body shop will know how to deal with it. There was some of the manufacturers that were giving warranty on these for first owners, and some even covered second owners, but my guess is that your out of that range for one reason or another if not time itself. if your going to re-do the tailgate yourself, do your best to take it down to bare metal and prep it properly before you re-finish it.

Paint peeling on my ford f-150

I have actually fixed these trucks under warranty. The EPA is the root cause of this, and lack of testing the newer system, this problem is pretty much of the past as the newer vehicle have a better system on them to complie with EPA regs.
