Re: Paint pimples in 15 HA hood

I guess I got lucky with about 4 of those, they seem to always be near the edges like the washing process before painting didnt quite flow over that area.

We're yours also at the top of the hood near the windshield?

Yup, only one up there though and its in the corner. I have another on my driver door edge but can't remember where the others are. I think it's a grain of sand assuming they sandblast the parts after cutting them.

Re: Paint pimples in 15 HA hood

For you guys who have 15 granite crystal metallic, check the edge of your hoods across the leading edge of the windshield on both sides of the hood. I looked under my hood today and I have bubbles all across the under edge. So many I lost count. Checked a few other granite crystal's at the dealer and they had the same issue. Will be taking mine in for photos next week and will be demanding a new hood factory painted.

Mine was built 10/2015 and I would bet Jeep is going to have a large batch with hood paint issues of granite crystal after what I saw at the dealer.

My '15 Overland with Granite Crystal has no bubbles on that leading edge, but enough other paint defects to make up for it. Doesn't seem as if Jeep paint jobs are too great.

Yeah seems most manufactures are putting out crap paint jobs any more. Also, check the bottom edges of your doors guys. Found bubbles in 3 of my 4 doors right on the bottom corner edge.

Re: Paint pimples in 15 HA hood

My 2012 had a problem with corrosion under the paint. Covered under warranty, re-painted the hood.

I fear these bubbles will lead to corrosion. Pisses me off these companies can't figure out how to paint a damn aluminum hood. Ford is the same way. Had an explorer do it. Guess I will have to start getting a sandwich bag and go over the hood of any future vehicle i buy since the QC at the factories can't seem to catch anything.

Re: Paint pimples in 15 HA hood

Well my 2014 has corrosion on the leading edge of the hood. I'm gonna see what the dealer can do for me. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1462454183.480236.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1462454205.096817.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1462454214.864595.jpg

Re: Paint pimples in 15 HA hood

Man that sucks. Make sure the dealer gets you a new hood. If they attempt to strip and repaint, it will just come back in a year or so.

Yeah.. I'm very disappointed to see that on a 2014 vehicle. I'm not optimistic about getting new hood though.
