    Hi has anyone come across this before, afraid you have to look carefully at the picture it does not show up too clearly.

    It is the rear nearside garage door on a new Rapido van and I have just noticed a line of crazing down the centre of the panel and no we have not let it blow open or shut.

    Is it a fault in the panel during manufacture?

    I guess the only answer is a new door with the associated hassle.

    i think you will find that boats get similar and it is usually caused by water getting behind the 'gel/fibreglass' topcoat, usually starts from a small scratch/knock which allows the water to ingress There are polishes available at a chandlers to minimise the effect, but i would contact your dealer in all honesty

    Looks similar to what happened to my over cab at the corner. Done under warranty and believe new gel coat applied, Looks good as new.

    Simple ..... just tell them you want a new door.

    We recently had Swift fit a complete new back end on ours due to crazed gel coat.
