Paint chipping/peeling off on lower radiator...

Anyone else have paint chipping or coming off the lower portion of the radiator in the large middle opening on the front bumper?

Mine has started chipping off and peeling back. Dealership has told me they are aware of the issue but no fix other than to repaint with high temp black but that likely with that exposed it will happen again.

Anyone have this happen and find a decent fix for it.

Not happy about this and my truck is only 8 months old....

Happened to me too. On both left and right side of rad. I just repainted it.

Same here... factory paint didn't last long. I just taped it off and sprayed with rustoleum. Should have used the high-temp stuff but its still holding on after a year.

Is it the radiator or intercooler? The paint was peeling off my intercooler. When Ford replaced my radiator, they replaced the intercooler with a new one. Nice shiny black paint It has held up nice so far. The tech told me to just say the truck was blowing white smoke and they would replace the intercooler free of charge.

I just hit it with industrial rustoleum and it is holding up just fine.
