Default factory paint problems

First off I also had a small area that seemed dulled on my tailgate. I know it sucks because after paying that much money for a new truck you want that top notch paint job but the robotic painters at the factory dont always perfect paint jobs. I work in a body shop and I cant even begin to count how many dealers have brought in new cars for repaints due to poor clear coats. Also sometimes the dealers try to buff the cars themselves after a long winter or something to give it that shine and more times than not burn through the clear. to fix mine i just used a small amount of wet sanding with 2000 grit sand paper and buff and polished. Its not perfect but brought back most of the shine.. just a suggestion hope it helps
