SOURCE: Paint is blistering on edge

First Wash the area, than take a dremel and with the wire wheel @ high speed, grind off the bistering and feather as best into good paint. Next rough up the area with some 100 grit sand paper. Use body filler (bondo 2 part filler) and smooth over with plastic blade. When dried work with 220 grit sand paper till you achieve the lines you want. spray cover with primer and apply touch up paint(Dealer has the best matchs) in coats. When happy with color use a 400 grit wet sandpaper to get a highly smooth finish and when dried cover with a clear coat finish.(Auto part stores). Buff when that dries and I guarantee thats the cheapest easiest d-i-y- fix you can get.

SOURCE: Paint peeling on hood

Your paint is peeling due to wear and tear. It usually occurs because of the suns ultra Violet rays and salt from the road during the winter. This is normal. The only way to stop this from happening is to take the hood off and have it sanded and repainted. After that you will need to wax it about once a week with a wax that protect the clear coat. You can buy this at any automotive parts store. After you have it repainted they will tell you not to wax or go through a high pressure car wash for 30 days so the paint has time to completely cure. I would suggest that you take it to Macco. they will be the cheapest on having it repainted.

SOURCE: paint is peeling off my

Inquire from the dealer to obtain the paint durability data (paint thickness measurements) from the factory. The dealer may have received a factory defect without knowing it.

We released two books on the subject during 2009.

We have contacted Ford's Board of Directors on this issue
as well as their senior quality and paint management.

They have been informed that millions of factory defects were released to the consumer.

How do Ireplace front fenders on a venture van


Should be able to find all the bolts to the inner fender panel and remove, then any holding fender to grill or bumper, then under hood bolts along top edge, then open door (carefully) and remove any bolts between door and fender, and may be one more at bottom rear of fender. Keep all shims and mark them to go back in same location, but be aware new part may not be identical to part removed, thus some further adjustment with shims may be needed. I often use masking tape on the edges of fenders and doors to help prevent chipping paint.

2000ford Taurus where do you find the color code for the paint


Its on the driver side door edge AKA a "jamb". The code is after the EXT PNT and will just be a couple letters. Take this code to your paint supplier and they will have a book to translate it into an actual paint color.

Make sure it's not something from the trees (sump , grease etc..) , and if it's a paint defect take it back to the dealer , you have warranty on that one.

If it's on the hood front, it's stone chips from small road debiris flying up and striking the hood, frille, etc,

If it's behind the wheels, install mudflaps and consider a body shop to spray on Gravel Guard over paint.

Paint issues with 2007 Outlander


There probably a whole batch of them from the factory that weren't prepped right for the final coat... I think it's a factory error. I would complain to the dealer and the company. I don't think they use any cheaper paint, and essentially use the same techniques in painting the vehicles.
