Long story short, I paid extra for red paint and noticed imperfections upon delivery. I've been granted a repaint by a reputable shop I've used before. My concern is the car will now be painted post-assembly. If they take it apart, will they put it back together correctly with no rattles, missing clips, alignment issues etc? If they don't take it apart, will they be able to perfectly mask so there's no paint on things that shouldn't be painted? Has anyone dealt with this?? I've only painted cars after accidents, so I'm a nervous wreck to be painting a brand new car - doesn't even have 1000 miles yet. The main issue was under spray on the front bumper, meaning you could see the plastic in some spots as the paint faded into the unpainted areas. The secondary issue is fish eyes on just about every panel. From a distance in the sun it looks great, but up close or in garage lights you can see the flaws and terrible orange peel. If the paint option were free, no problem, but for $2000 extra I'm really torn on what I should do. Any input, experience or advice is appreciated. The car is scheduled to go into paint on Monday.
