Default ALERT: possible 1012 Ebony Black Paint Issues

We bought a 2012 Ebony Black V6 Conv. - washed her carefully and kept it garaged when not toolin' down the ROAD -

Finishing up last week with a soft chamoise...and the wife spotted some white pieces under the clear-coat...all over the hood, with a few minor miscellaneous spots on the front fenders...

You could actually catch some of them with your finger nail...

Took it back to my dealer, who's shop manager said "oh, it's just a little fallout from the transportation..." and tried buffing it out - no luck, actually brought the crap to the surface.

I checked a couple of other Black 2012 stang's on their lot, and they had the same issue on the hoods....

The shop took the car for 2 days...had to take off a number of paint coats to get the imperfections (likely contamination in the paint/clearcoat process in the factory) out, and re-painted & re-clear-coated it.

It looks good for now...we'll see as time and elements weather the car's coat...

IF YOU HAVE A 2012 BLACK STANG, LOOK CLOSELY AT THE HOOD UNDER BOTH SUNLIGHT AND OTHER LIGHTING....
