I'm not surprised. Do you smell lemon? Around here you have met the burden of proof.

I went by on Thursday and they said they had it fixed and it just needed to be painted. I went by yesterday and it had been moved to the body shop, but had still not been painted. I am missing some of the best convertible days of the year !!! They really had a hard time working with the top. They said it was a big learning experience for them ...glad I could help

Good job !!!

I got the car back last Wednesday and the top is working great and "NO" paint spot. They did a really good job on it.

Jerry,

I'm a little puzzled here---Thank them for taking over three weeks to fix the problem and blemish--I don'T buy it.

Just my opinion!

In regards to your paint chipping, I believe if you check the position of your top assembly when secured in the trunck you will find that the mounting screw or screws are to long for the fit clearance which will cause the paint. FIX: If this the problem take a file or grinder and level or reduce the excess length of the bolts.Goodluck I have a pilotcar #53 and it had that same problem.

I think the complete issue will be resolved only if you will upload the picture because sometimes such spots appear due to continue hitting of the screw. If you once repaint or remove the spot and it appear again then best recommendation is to take it to the dealer as he can provide you best solution.

It is definitely a stowed adjustment problem. I had to adjust mine myself, since the dealer could not figure it out. I also ground the sharp edge on the trunk bracket, which was cutting it and spot sprayed the ground spot.
