After detailing my Flex for the first time this weekend, I notices that the metallic Ink Blue looks a bit flat for a metallic. Anybody have the same experience? Most notably on the hood where the surface looks smooth, it just doesn't have the sheen like I've been used to even on previous Ford finishes.

I have to put up some close up shots..... I think my whole car has "orange peel". That's right.. the whole car. I've seen others, and, some look loke mine, and some are "smooth".

Orange peal is from the paint drying before it flows out. I have never seen a Flex with this problem. The only way to get rid of it is to sand it down and repaint. It maybe in the clear coat.
