Typically a shop can wet sand and polish a run out for you. You do have to be aware though there is a chance they could burn through the clear and the panel would need to be repainted.

Speaking of paint defects (slightly changing subject)
But I assume I am not the only one with many many rock picks along the bottom
I don't even travel dirt roads much, but every rock I run over seems to bounce off the bottom of the truck and put beautiful little nicks and picks in the paint
Thinking about getting it done, I can't remember the term or name of it, but the wrinkle finish extra thick coating down there (if someone can help me out with what its called LOL) Its the same color and finished to match your truck but it is crinkled in appearance...

You can do spray-on bed liner in that area pretty easily. Line-X, Rhino Liner or Ultimate X-Treme are (3) good ones all of which can be applied to the vertical surface of the rocker panels with ease.

Its unlikely to be runs in the base as the base is a pretty thin coat. Its usually clear where the runs happen because its so much more material being applied. Even if it is depending on the run leveling the clear on top can minimize the appearance. Still if it ain't broke...

Its called Stoneguard or Rockguard. There is lots of names for it. There are many products. Some of which aren't really rough looking. We have one at work that is pretty smooth made by Glasurit. I don't like the real rough ones. I was thinking of installing 3m Film on my rockers.

3M won't help me out much....Already too many rock picks....Plus, I don't know how much protection that would provide anyways against rocks flying at 100+km/hr LOL

I am def going to look into some options

Bottoms of the RAMS and all trucks for that matter should be designed different to withstand issues like these considering we pay 20, 30, 40, 50k for them!

Ya putting the 3m over the rock chips wouldn't look good. You might be surprised how much it helps with the rocks. This is a very similar material to what is used in laminated bullet / explosion resistant glass and glass security film. Its not cheap crap plastic.

Following up on the paint defects, I have a similiar issue on the rear passenger side door on a 2009. I was a dark overcast day when I selected it off the lot, and it was raining when I picked it up in 2009.

the first sunny day when the light hit the brilliant black paint, multiple spray marks appeared on the door, but was only noticible in certain light conditions.

I took it to the dealer where I bought it and they have their own bodyshop, went to the bodyshop manager and he said this was normal, and was not covered by warrenty.

It looks like crap on a sunny day when the light hits it just right.

It was bought June 2009 and has 42,000km or 26,000 miles, you think its too late to fix?
