"Patchy paintwork?"

Post by Wh05apk on Mon May 22, 2017 3:05 am

I have noticed the gold paintwork on our 10 day old kemertom xl appears very patchy on the nearside, al mmm ost as if it has been poorly sprayed over a silver base, elsewhere it appears even, anyone else experienced this?

Hi and welcome to the forum wave

We have a 2016 Warwick Duo in white gold. We too have the same paint affect and as you say it is more noticeable on the nearside particularly the side door. I think it can be a problem with light metallic colours with the uneven spread of the metallics in the paint.
My previous Symbol which was the light blue also had the fault but wasn't quite as noticeable, again it was the side door.

You have to catch it in a certain light to really notice.

I once had to have an Audi A3 in brilliant silver replaced with a new car due to what I call shadowing, looked like there were mini clouds above the car. I was fortunate to get it replaced as I think nowadays you would have to let the garage respray.

To be honest I would rather live with it than have it resprayed.

Regards

Hubert

Thanks Hubert, on a week old van, I would not accept a major respray, as it would be out of action for weeks, all of the stickers would need to be removed, along with all of the vents etc, I think to be done properly this would need to go back to autosleepers to be stripped/taken away for respray, then rebuilt, the concern then would be whether everything would then be as solid/rattle free having been disturbed?

It looks like this is a Peugeot issue, presumably built to van standards cosmetically rather than car standards?

I polished my 'golden white' a couple of weeks ago and noticed some very minor patches on the nearside. 

As mentioned already, it's not worth the effort of putting it in for respray with all that entails.

As a few respondents have the gold paint, what colour is showing on your V5 ?

Mine's recorded as brown and as I'm submitting my V5 soon for a weight uprate change, I might ask them to correct it to 'gold', unless of course brown is the official colour ?

Mine is silver and the paint seems to be fine.

As for a respray, I do have a small dent on the back corner that was done by a dealer when I was having a scooter rack fitted.
Experts have told me that the back end needs resprayed, so I am going to live with the dent rather than all the hassle.

StewPotch have you thought of using one of these "Dent Master" or similar to remove the dent.

I had 20 dents taken out of a bonnet which had been badly dented during a violent hailstorm in France. Luckily I knew the man otherwise would have cost a bit. The results were amazing you couldn't see where they had been and some were quite deep.


My van is also listed as white also on the V5, I think they choose nearest to the colour description.

Cheers

These days spray jobs are completed quite quick around a week, they don't want motors clogging up workshops and yards these days.

Think i would live with the problem you could have it sprayed then find you have a dull spot on the other side.

Hi Hubert,

Had a couple of Dent Masters/Dent Devils take a look. They reckon it's too close to the corner and would probably 'crack' the paint as well taking it out.

I'll live with it until I'm ready to sell the van in a few years - by that time it'll probably have a few more dings anyway.

We had a similar issue with our new Fiat 500, it looked like there was a cloudy finish on the drivers door.

The paint expert at the dealer found it was caused by moisture during the paint process, they dried it out over a couple of days using heat lamps and it did the trick.

My old Fiat based van was Golden White and listed as White on the V5.

We have just swapped for a new Auto-Sleeper and after 9 years there was nothing wrong with the paintwork. It looked as good as new after a wash and had never seen sight of any polish.
