Some vehicle looks like have chicken pox and some option can help like a protection kit or paint seal or just vinyl wrap the car. Many companies try to save money but like this that is not really nice. I think some 20 years old cars have better paint. The undercoat doesn’t show the difference. This is a Japanese car. So some information here for you.

Because the body earth is not implemented with the high voltage system parts.

The body colour code is stamped on the vehicle information code plate, which is attached on the hood.
