My name is Deysha with Ford Customer Service. I did some research about this for you and found that the info provided to you by your dealer is correct. Paint will always look slightly different on metal surface versus a plastic surface. Itís just the difference in materials. Some are more noticeable than others.
That is a great story!
I hope that works well for Ford.
Other manufacturers that require a monotone finish take appropriate steps to ensure that result.
