Paint issues

Post by Skid1768 » Sun Mar 17, 2019 2:13 pm

God afternoon peeps, sitting here just after having knee surgery I find myself with nothing to do, or rather an inability to do anything other than peruse the net looking for my next car, an F Type. So, abusing the breadth of knowledge on here, I would like to ask some questions. Having had a red car, with paint issues, ie micro blistering. I just wondered if anyone with a car of 5 years age and over, if they have had any issues with paint problems?. I have heard that red cars suffer the worst when it comes to paint, so if anyone has had any experience of anything untoward, I would be very interested to know.

Kind Regards

Stuart

My Red F-Type is 6 years old now (!) No issues at all. It does live in the garage when its not in use i might add, but no issues.

Mine is almost 5 years old (May 2014) and color is IRR (Italien Racing Red). The Paint was ceramic coated (Gtechniq Crystal Cerum) when it was 1 years old, and it still looks like New. No paint issues what so ever.
