Now I have heard it all.
I have been told that my bumper covers were painted miles away
from the body and the other painted details like the mirrors and spoiler
when produced by Ford on the assembly line. And that they will never match.
This was told by the body man painting my rear bumper cover metalic redfire.
The story changes to cover the body mans **** when he cannot
get the paint to match.
I had them repaint it three times and it is still way too dark.
Now the pre-painted Roush HoodScoop I bought off eBay matched
like no ones busisness as did the pre-painted Roush 1/4 window covers/louvers.
Go figure. Someone with only a paint code gets it perfect miles away
but the body shop that has the car cant get the bumper cover to
match the rest of the OEM paint.
Metalic RedFire must be a biatch to match...
