Jeff Bellune Posted September 8, 2017 Report Share Posted September 8, 2017 Hi All, First-time poster. Found some really good info by lurking prior to purchasing my new GT350 -- thank you everyone for being willing to share your knowledge and insight! I have a black 2017 Shelby GT350 that came from the factory with bubbles in the clearcoat on the hood, and swirl marks all over from the original dealer running it through their automatic car wash. (My dealer traded a 2017 Raptor to the original dealer for the Shelby so I could have the color I wanted.) Ford is paying to repaint the hood, and my dealer's body shop will try to polish out the swirl marks. The body shop does a lot of custom work for customers as well as some local dealerships, so I'm hopeful they will do a good job. My question: how much will the loss of the factory paint job on the hood affect the collectible or resale value of the car, assuming they do a good job with OEM paint and match the black color of the rest of the car? It's a real kick in the gut to finally get a brand-new Shelby, only to have serious appearance issues. Thanks, Jeff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
