So I picked up a 2010 black 2500HD GMC crew cab this past Thursday. I washed it a day later because we had some rain and it got buggy from the 85 mile trip home. I noticed a couple little spots on the truck, then a couple more, then a couple didn't I see these when I was buying it is what I thought? Hidden by the rain spots? Anyway, I'll put a link up to picasa, cuz I can never seem to get these photos embedded. I took it to an auto body place and they suspect these are spots that occurred during original painting. It looks like the paint didn't stick to the truck. Maybe a water or oil spot on the truck during paint process. There are about 12 spots, some worse than others. The worst ones are on the roof. Looks like something acidic ate through the paint, but autobody guy says more likely it happened during the painting. The autobody wrote up an estimate to repaint the panels that have the spots-hood, roof, drivers door, passengers door, drivers cab, drivers bed rail, passengers bed rail-$3500! Dealer is calling me back on Monday. Guess they have there own body guy they are going to talk to. They said they'd like to keep manufacturers paint on if possible. Touching up is an option, but how is that going to look on the black truck. Not sure what to think/do. Repaint a brand new truck? Settle for touch up? Ugh.
