i went to ask about my paint job i got because my 96, thats right my 1996 ford t-bird is rusting. mike, the guy who owns the shop that painted it, said its not covered by the warranty at all because the car rusting has nothing to do with the paint. the paint is from dupont and has a 5 yr warranty, which for me ends in august. so he told me to talk to a guy up at blue ridge auto about it since they deal with dupont and thats where mike gets the paint. he said about the same thing, the metal was going to rust no matter whats done on the surface, even if it wasnt painted. now i understand, i think, that if the metal rusted from the inside and through to the outer side, hes right. but heres my questions. if the rust started between the paint and the outer side of the metal, does that imply bad prep work? if not, what could be the cause? can he be liable for it? i really dont want to spend a couple 1000 for a new job seeing it cost over $3000 in the first place.
