Default TSB for hood corrosion problem?

Does anyone know where I can see/print the TSB for the aluminum hood corrosion problem mentioned in this post?

http://mustangforums.com/m_3728193/tm.htm

I was waxing my car today (2006 Silver) and noticed this bubbling ( about 1/4 inch X 1/4 inch) on the front lower lip of my hood.

The post says there is a Ford TSB for this but I can't find it in the TSB section of the forum. I would like to have the TSB before I go to the dealer just in case.

Also, does this tend to spread?

Thanks!!!

This article supersedes TSB 04-25-1 to update the vehicle model years.
ISSUE:[/u]
Some vehicles may exhibit a bubbling or blistering under the paint on aluminum body parts. This is due to iron contamination of the aluminum panel.
ACTION:[/u]
This TSB provides service tips and procedures, outlining methods to properly prepare and protect aluminum body parts from cross contamination.
BACKGROUND

Ford's Scientific Research Laboratory has performed a number of tests on vehicle body parts returned for corrosion related concerns. Testing has revealed that the aluminum corrosion was caused by iron particles working their way into the aluminum body part, prior to it being painted.
SERVICE TIPS AND PROCEDURE

When repairing a vehicle for corrosion or collision damage, it is essential that extreme care be taken to cover and protect all aluminum parts to prevent cross metal contamination. Areas in a shop where metal work is performed should be sectioned off, using at the very least curtain walls, to prevent metal dust migration. Cross contamination can also occur through the use of metal working tools (hammers, dolly's, picks, grinding wheels, etc.). Tools used for aluminum repairs should be kept separate, and not used to repair other metals. Wire brushes used on aluminum should be made of stainless steel.




NOTE:
THIS PROCEDURE SHOULD ONLY BE USED ON NON-PERFORATED METAL. REVIEW WARRANTY AND POLICY MANUAL FOR VEHICLE WITH PERFORATED METAL.





NOTE:
READ THIS PROCEDURE COMPLETELY BEFORE PERFORMING ANY SERVICE.
[ol][*]Corrosion should be removed by blasting. Use an aggressive blasting material, such as acrylic (salt grain size).[*]Use a DA sander with 180 grit paper backed abrasive. Only sand and featheredge the damaged area.[*]Mix and apply Ford approved epoxy primer, per the manufacturer's label instructions. Bake at 140° F (60° C), or use an infra-red lamp for curing.[*]If necessary, mix and apply two-part polyester filler to a slight over crown. Allow polyester filler to cure 20-30 minutes, or mix and apply spray polyester filler two-three (2-3) coats as necessary. Allow to cure per manufacturer's label instructions.[*]Hand-sand the repair area with 80 grit sand paper to remove excess filler.[*]Finish-sand the repair area with 400 grit sand paper.[*]Mix and apply Ford approved primer/surfacer per manufacturer's label instructions. Bake at 140° F (60° C) or use infra-red lamp for curing.[*]Sand the primer/surfacer with 400-600 grit to level the surface.[*]The next two steps are wet-on-wet. Mix and apply to hiding Ford recommended basecoat material per manufacturer's label instructions. Allow to flash.[*]Mix and apply two (2) coats (2 mils minimum) of Ford approved clearcoat per manufacturer's label instructions. Allow flash time. Finish bake at 140° F (60° C). [/ol]

Good luck, but you shouldnt have any problem...

Must be really common, I went for a bubble on the frame of the car above the driver side door, guy came out looked at it for about 10 seconds and made an appointment with a body shop. easy as pie.

I went to the dealer to have them fix this and they told me it was only covered if my car was under 36,000 miles. I mentioned the TSB and my 5 year corrosion warranty, and they told me they had to be able to stick a poker through the hood. True or false, because if it's false they are getting my car back, and I won't take no for an answer.
