Default New Member w Pic and Question

First post as I just got my new 11 Sport a couple weeks ago. Have already put some mods on including: 3M, Weathertechs, Truxedo, 22" Elite Carnal, and De Badge. Going to tint tails and waiting for my stubby antenna to come in the mail.

So far I am really happy with the truck but was wondering if anyone else has noticed paint flaws with their trucks? I notice little imperfections and even one spot that looks like a run. Seems weird for a new factory painted truck.

There have been other members posting that their paint job wasn't the best or a little thin. I haven't noticed that, but maybe it's worth a trip back to the dealer with you.

If it ain't right, I'd get it back to them for correction.

You're not the only one with flaws in the paint but as has been said, best thing to do is take it in and let them correct it.

I have a couple flaws, but I didn't notice it until about 2 weeks later. I am not happy with the factory paint. My front bumper is chipping already. I had my chevy for 50,000 miles and it never did that...

I wax my baby every weekend and I haven't noticed a thing. Guess I'm one f the few lucky ones. I'd have to agree with everyone about getting back in to the service manager and getting it fixed.

Nice truck. Welcome to the forum. I agree with what everyone else said regarding your paint. I have done a complete clay bar/polish/wax on mine and have not noticed any issues with the paint. Good luck.
