I think it may be time to cut your losses here Matt. Put it down to experience and don't buy their products again and tell anybody that will listen how bad they are, also put it all over social media.

Starting to think the same Rae. I don't particularly want it back as-is and I'm not paying for them to re-coat without some kind of "oh yeah we left a cat in the factory overnight, and it was a boy cat and it weed everywhere to mark its territory, so that's probably it." Which is doubtful.

i'd take it home and get someone to paint it... will need well cleaned as i still think thats fisheye, and as said before it's bad preparation or water in the system.
big -1 to gpr and indeed whoever you bought it of... they should at least be offering you a deal on something ...at the very least.
get them named and shamed.

YouTube it. Do a wonderful video and you can also tell 'em about the paint being worn off the end of mine in transit, even though it was in there lovely protective bag.

Whose lovely protective bag? ::)
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
