Musky....
Not me. Personally, I wouldn't have a vehicle rustproofed more than once since subsequent applications might actually hide a small problem until it gets too big to hide...

Mine looks exactly the same. What a pain in the --- it will be having to take it in and get it fixed. Trying to think what I can have done at the dealership while its there? Did they give you any trouble? I haven't taken mine back yet.Bought it from the HUGE man in Nelliston, They have been good to me so far this should be a good test.

I didnt have to many issues, went stright to service manager, gave him the keys, an told him ill be looking for things different. job was great, only thing i found is my mud guard 1/8'' away from my fender. An the paint flake behind rear wheels on bottem of box was taken care of. and dealer would only pay 2 days for a car( lets just say i got my money outa that charger) they dont paint the whole bed, just that inside part.

I'm sure it can't be done (at least properly) while you wait. The last time I had my truck in for extended repairs (ball joints on my '07 lemon) they set me up with a nice rental.

You think that is bad. My truck is Austin Tan and I have pin sized rust marks all over the tailgate. Dealership said they have to make sure it is rust and not just paint chips. I swear I am getting real sick of this truck!

Chances are what you're seeing isn't rust but "rail dust", or tiny pieces of metallic dirt that stick to the paint; my truck is white and I find it all the time.

Clean the truck good then claybar the tailgate and I'd be willing to bet the "rust" spots will disappear.

x2 on the claybar.

i used to think that chrysler used terrible white paint on our '01 caravan and we decided to not get another white one. Then i saw it on our silver '04 and '07 vans as well as on my caliber. I eventually found out that its just contaminants that settle onto the paint from junk in the air. the claybar gets rid of them fairly easy and makes the paint butter smooth.

But the pain quality SUCKS on new rams. Mine is like a moth old and it got tons of scratches all over the side of the truck.

I'd say take better care of your truck, don't blame the paint. Mine's a year old and I don't have a single scratch on it.
