A Launceston cheater got more than they bargained for, after their scorned partner gave their ute a new paint job.

The Ford was spotted on the corner of York and Bathurst Streets, with the words "Cheater" and "I [heart] crack w****s" written on the body in bright red spray paint.

The photo was posted to Facebook group 'Dash Cam Owners Australia' with the caption "Oi Damo I think the Misses is a touch upset mate".

The picture gained almost 10,000 likes and nearly 1500 comments since it was published on Monday.

Facebook users from across the country weighed in on the owner's guilt, with commenter Chris Wall posting "Poor bloke. Isn't it embarrassing enough Being seen driving a ford?". 

Facebook user Bishop Williams commented: 

"XR8 ute = $39,990

Red spray paint = $2.95

Driving in public with "cheater" sprayed on your tailgate = priceless."

One social media user said the vehicle had been sporting its new paint job since they spotted it in Punchbowl Road, Youngtown, on Friday.

Neither the vehicle's owner or the vandal had come forward.
