    It should, but it seems the way they did it it may’s well been the cheapest job you could get done down the local panel beater - not even removing or masking the plastic roof rails!!

    The roof rails were painted by the supplier.

    The photos that launched this thread don't look like that; it looks like they did what I thought they were doing, and took each finished car aside at the factory before delivering to the dealer & just hit the roof with some "Phantom" paint while simply masking stuff off & not removing anything ...

    Roof was painted before any assembly was carried out. Jump to the 7:10 Mark in this video and you will see the black roof being applied and masking being removed afterwards

    I wonder how much of that production equipment is still just sitting there unused.

    That is what I quoted.

    My point is, what he saw differs to the video you posted.

    Why two different processes ?
