has anyone heard of metallic flip?
I just got my 2001 Mitsu Galant back from a reputable body shop and noticed that in the direct sunlight the metallic effect did not exist that once did. The car is a dark red, and in the sun the parts that were re painted look pink and have no reflective qualities at all. The service advisor said that he has seen this before and it's called metallic flip. If I stand at the front of the car and look the paint kind of matches, but once I walk to the rear and look I get that non-reflective pink looking color. Needless to say the shop has to fix this before I will accept the car back. So is there really a term called metallic flip, or was the service advisor just making that up to cover up a horrible paint job.
