What a bummer, does wet sanding have any effect on the clear coat?

The dealer ASSUMES it was done at the factory, something like that happening at the factory will never be known for certain by the dealership. Cars which enter quality control never have the reason for their delay revealed, even to a dealership....so it could be possible that the dealership did it, and is just lying...or they could just be assuming, but don't let 'em tell you they know for SURE it was done at the factory...

Ok, it's 2:30, been at work for 16 straight hours, I'm rambling....sorry :)

<<More likely it happen on the transport,either truck or rail.All it would take is a dropped chain or binder from the level above.If you ever have the rear glass replaced again,take the time to have the inside of the hatch cover painted in gloss black,takes all the cheap look away from the flat paint the factory uses.

Ford, yes the same plant Frank works at:eek: has a lot next door to where I work. They use this lot to load transporters. Anyway about a year ago I was heading to lunch and what do I see. A brand new Explorer sitting on its roof with the flashers on. One of the funniest things I have ever seen. Now if that was your car, That Would Suck!!

I was at BG plant 9-7-01 and saw one at end of production with rear glas shattered..it was a coupe. I also was taken for a test track RIDE!!! in someone's silver Z06. I wanted to note the serial # and post here ... but it's better the owner doesn't know. Anyway between the donuts and 100mph run and subsequent 180 degree hairpin turn at 45mph I didn't have time. PS the tech. was testing a transmission problem.. it seems the car was jumping out of third gear under hard accel. The experiance was one I won't forget. That same morning the entire plant blacked out for one hour and the back up generators did not kick in. They told me @ 20 car would be scrapped in the painting area.

.

They sure are--Have crushed many at derailments,line them up after dragging them out of the tri-level cars , and crush. them with CATS.All parts go to a scrapper--nothing is saved.

What's unusual about that? Don't all Exploders do that?? :D

Want to know can you tell if your dealer is lying? His lips move. Did you ask him, why, if it happened at the factory, the factory would not fix it there rather than have the car exposed to all the elements? :roll:

Sheesh!
