I have an '05 F350 SRW that has dealt me great fits with the paint. I want to know if anyone else had seen or had issues like this.
The truck has severe acid rain etching on all surfaces that hold water. Mainly the hood, front bumper cover and down the body side break. The hood was wetsanded/buffed on one side, but still didn't hold up.
The truck gets a normal once a week (no more than 2) hand wash with a sheepskin mitt and Meguiar's soap. Mainly waxed with Meg's #26 or 16 depending on time available to me. I've never had durability issues with either of these waxes.
Don't tell me its normal. I've got an '04 150 in the same color that will clearly prove otherwise. The trucks sit together and get the same treatment.
As I wetsanded you could see the etching/pitting get cut away. It looked "pitted" too, not just a "stain line".
Pics below speak for themselves. If ANYONE has seen anything like this on their truck, please speak up.

Just for fun, this is the hood of the 150...
I know its not a straight sun shot, but its representative in total because there is nearly NOTHING in terms of water spots on it...
