I have touch up paint already, so I'll probably stick some rubber washers in there, or maybe sand down the inside of that edge a little. I'm pretty sure I can do a better job than the ford tech will end up doing.

Very true... if ur still in warranty I would make them replace the tail light, fix the spot and re-clear the whole 1/4 panel

I might go that route. But then I'm afraid the whole quarter panel won't match correctly. Plus, knowing how the dealers work, they will blame it on me because I took those lights off to nightshade them, so "I must have put them back on incorrectly"

Descriptions noted. Touched up paint damage and 'business card test' accomplished.

Didn't sand much off of area indicated. Be sure to sand in the same direction as the beveled angle on the back side. It helps keep the shape of the curves and looks good from the outside.

Take Care

P.S. I had an appointment at the dealer body shop today to have it fixed but I decided I could do it avoid the stress.

Crystal (here), Jeff (rep) and Carl at the dealer body shop were helpful. I'm sure the job done would have been adequate. (just not as good as mine.. )

2012 Focus Hatch paint issue

Anyone else experiencing spots of cracking/flaking paint on the rear spoiler of their 2012 Focus hatchback? We have 3 spots on our Focus that are cracking and the paint is flaking off. Car is still under warranty but Ford wants to charge me $100 to fix the problems. Even my dealer was dumbfounded.

Could a mod move this to General Technical Chat? I think I've got this in the wrong forum.
