Default 2013 bright sliver metallic paint mottling

Has any noticed paint mottling on standard cab express models?
I bought mine in may and started seeing stripes from top to bottom running the whole length of the truck. In the pictures its hard to see but in person it stands out bad.

Lets try this. Might be alittle hard to see. Look for the light and dark spots on the door and fender.

Calped the images show the splotchy, streaky stuff. You know I think that silver metallic paint has an industry wide problem like this.

Have you tried waxing the truck - just out of curiosity to see if that helped?

OR are you going to have the dealership body shop repaint it?

No. I'm a ICAR trained paint and body tech. The wax just intensified it. But I have traded that truck in on a bright silver quad cab. I did a 2 day demo and washed and waxed it before I did the deal. Its a world of difference with the new truck. There is a spot on the hood but I'm looking at putting a R/T hood on it so no big deal. The dealer kinda took care of me and got me in to my new truck and financed under sticker price. This past Friday. Now ram thinks all my trouble is only worth 6 oil changes over 4 years. What a joke. I can change my cheaper then it cost in gas to get to a ram dealership.

Dealership oil changes never seem to be a sensible deal unless you have real trouble changing your own oil.

I can get my oil/filter drained, changed, refilled and dirty oil back into jugs in about 15 min.

Post photos of the new quad cab.

This is my new QC Ram. I upgraded to the radio to ra2 radio from ra1. Had the chrome clad wheels removed and my wheels from the standard cab swapped with the new tires staying on the new truck..
