It would also likely be wise for Ford to fix the root cause at the plant. Even if it's one car in a thousand, that's 200 annoyed customers next year, and paying just one bodyshop to repaint a panel adds up to a lot of washers.
It appears both of my left side lamps are rubbing badly, the hood is even worse than the tail lamp, now concerned about every body gap. Grr.
