Re: anyone know about quality problems with white paint at the factory?

i heard that they were discontinuing the pearl because it was very
expensive and it required some elaborate and environmentally damaging
chemical process...?  certainly they made tons of beautiful pearl cars
in the last dozen yrs, so didn't seem to be a quality issue before...
