Hmmm - I wish them luck with that. The traditional way to measure paint thickness is with a magnetic measure that does exactly that; it measures the distance between the metal and the exterior paint level, thus paint thickness.....They now need to do paint depth measurements...
I think there are a number of devices that work on all sorts of coated materials even chrome plating, galvanising and powder coating etc... apparently they work on plastic bumpers, aluminium and fibre glass... still seems odd though. I wonder if the water is tracking through from the inside.Hmmm - I wish them luck with that.

How they manage that on a fibre glass roof should be interesting
Good luck.My blister issue is with the Merc warranty people at the moment, that said there was a 3 week delay as it was the dealers first experience of the blister issue. They have told me it is following a different path to normal bodywork paint issues. I would normally get upset and be a pain phoning and complaining constantly but as this doesn't affect the MPs usability and virtually everyone has had delays, I'll just see how it goes. It will be fun to see how many excuses are rolled out! I'm waiting for the respray or replace battle to come....
I did get a call from the dealers yesterday asking for more info, the westfalia serial number from the b pillar. The plan might be to ask for a bit of info each week, this could take years!!Good luck.
I’m very impressed with your tolerance and patience. Can you share the name of your therapist/wine/beer so that I can follow your example!
You would have hoped that the dealer was knowledgable enough to collect all pertinent information when you first visitedI did get a call from the dealers yesterday asking for more info, the westfalia serial number from the b pillar.

.....or the cynic may feel that it is a delaying tactic as there is clearly a backlog of new roof panels perhaps?It sounds to me like this is becoming an expensive issue for MB to rectify(I have seen 4 of these faulty roof panels now),and MB are going to try and make it more difficult for customers to get the fault rectified.They are probably hoping that if they do this then more customers will not go through with the warranty claim-some will not bother as it’s not something you ordinarily see on the van,out of sight is out of mind!
Hi, and welcome to the forum.Hello. I am looking a purchasing a 68 plate 250d AMG lineMarco Polo at the weekend. I have seen this post and asked the guy wether it had blisters. It does. Now I am wondering wether to purchase it as it seems a lot of hassle.
I do love the camper but it’s a lot of money to purchase something with a known fault. It would also need the mattress recall doing. What would people advise?
I bought mine privately. It doesn't seem to matter as I've has the awning, bed and fridge replaced.I am not getting it from Mercedes. It is a lovely MP with lots of extras but I am paying £50k and with 2 known problems needing correcting I am a more than a little worried about parting with £50k.
