Did Ford cut corners on the paint job on these demos? **pics included**

I finally saw the Bronco in person today and loved it.
It looks like they may have cut some corners with the paint job tho? It’s not typical for a car from factory to have bolts painted over and over spray or under sprayed parts. Im used to seeing that on wrecked and cheaply repaired cars but not brand new cars?

Could it just be a demo thing? 😬

I was curious on this, as I've noticed in pictures the bolts to mount the doors were painted over. I would imagine taking those off a couple times the paint would flake right off.

Every Ford I've ever owned had painted body panel bolts.

I saw a video of a demo bronco with a close up of the trim sticker - the paint looked terrible - seemed egg shell-like

This forum is full of the most nitpicky "enthusiasts" that I have ever seen in an automotive community. 🤣
Calm ya tots🤣.. I’m not canceling my order over it. I posted pics on my FB and a couple of people commented about it.

My second pic looks like over spray tho. The color is completely different. Might just be a demo thing but several people noticed it with the doors off. 😬

That excuse has nearly run it's course. There's going to be a great meltdown when preproduction quirks become production quirks.
Exactly.

Every Bronco and picture of a Bronco I have seen has poor coverage in that area. Like they forgot it’s visible when the doors are off.

Excuses for Ford should have their own thread...no, there are enough for a whole forum. Enough already, they should know how to build a new car by now. Y’all just quit. I just read an article about Ford building its 350 millionth car...from 2012. Let’s dispense with the bullshit and expect a decent product.
