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

In my experience, pearl effect paints require two trips through the paint
booth to achieve the effect and deliver a quality finish (or at least they
used to...).  Hence the higher price to compensate for the two paint jobs in
one, and the scheduling confusion that is caused at the assembly plant to
pull these vehicles out of production sequence and reintroduce them back
into the process.  HTH.
