Paint Help!!

I was waxing the truck on Saturday and started on the roof when I noticed that there was a small bubble in the paint towards the back. I am worried that it could be a cancer spot starting. I have extended warranty, does that normally cover paint?

Here is the answer and you are not going to like it. Ford will fix it if you are under the original 3 year / 36,000 miles if not you have to pay for it. Here is the really bad info the primer is releasing from the metal not the paint.

If it is perforation starting then it may still be covered. The warranty for perforation is 5 yrs. or 100,000 miles.

Send a message via MSN to redstroker_2002
dont warranty it because the decutables will be more than just fixing that spot.

I went to 2 different stealerships they will not fix it under the Perforation warranty. I spoke with the body shop manger and he confirmed that the paint was coming off due to flash time between the primer and paint application. Out here since we are so dry metal perforation does not happen fast at all.
