Well i purchased a left over new 07 colorado z71 on december 29th. it had spots on the hood and roof from where acid rain ate through the clear coat. I had the dealer repaint them at their cost, it looked good untill now where a bird shit on it and i washed it the next day and there are spots in the clear coat where the shit was. i guess the bird was drinkin some of that acid rain. and on top of that i noticed in front of the rear fender flares there are small rust spots starting to form on the body. now dont get me wrong they are only the size of a sharp pencil tip but none the lessthere is rust forming on the exterior of the body not even on the frame yet. Does anyone have these same problems. I am planning on calling the zone office tomorrow to get this straightened out. i dont want a brand new truck that is already showing signs of rust.


Sorry just kinda pissed off!!

:doku2:

we used to have a problem with rail dust it looked like small rust spots that cleaned off real easy with a lite polish compound.

alright thanks. i think ill try it. i just hate the thought of owning a brand new vehicle that already has paint issues. i dont want to imagine what its gonna look like in a couple of years.
