    So I am on my third day of ownership and after the first wash I noticed some bubbling in the clear coat. Not sure what to do[​IMG]

    Did you buy it new? It should be under warranty. I think a body shop should be able
    to sand down the excess clear coat, or worst case, it would have to be repainted. Man...

    Yes, they might be able to wet sand that. Worst case, new truck easy to feather in some paint and clear, won’t even notice.

    Sucks on a brand new car.

    Get a good ceramic coat on it when they’re done.

    That almost looks like it's been repainted once and not done well. I'm trying to picture where that is on the truck but can't figure it out. Good luck getting it fixed to your satisfaction.

    Ford paint quality its very bad.

    I have a Black color truck and I hate when its clean, if I take a closer look I can see lots of imperfections in the paint job........I do prefer to keep the truck a bit dirty.

    Good luck with your truck!

    That does look like a point of entry or port stop repair. Take it back have it repainted your not getting it out with bugging with the bubbles and solvent pop in there.

    Not sure on your truck but this is the worst paint job on any truck I've owned I feel bad for you but with all the other issues with the raptor trucks I might just get rid of mine ford is just like all the rest they sell us inferior products at big costs and don't back them sorry for the rant hope your paint gets fixed correctly !
