Red marks on Supercharger

Only noticed this 2 days ago as I lifted the hood to show someone the engine bay.
It looks like two red sharpie marks.

I am minorly peeved that they are there but suspect that they can be gotten off somehow.

My bigger concern is whether they are there to indicate the part should have been rejected because of a internal casting defect.

Thoughts?

I just know that in my business rejected castings get the defective area marked with a red sharpie so I've been having niggling doubts in the back of my head

I work at a supplier for Toyota/Lexus and all parts that are hand checked or marked are marked with a sharpie or paint marker. Anything OK is blue or green, anything bad is always red. Could just be a coincidence.

Wow I'll be surprised if GM fubared this one especially how they held them so long for QC reasons.

Some of the restorers of older cars put these marks back because they came with the car from the factory....???

I'm in the Lighting industry and it's the same with us but generally on raw parts. This is over the paint or soaked through.

Chalk marks are common and noticible on new builds, they come from the assembly line.., I haven't looked mine over yet to see those little things yet...but they are official. Your mark may be out of place for some reason during the build.., but I wouldn't personally be concerned about it. Enjoy your ride!

Can't blame the OP for being pissed off at that right there, reguardless of what they mean. I mean hell it's two large freakin paint/marker marks on his supercharger in plain view... I sure hope they come off man... I wouldn't scrub too hard or you might scratch it up.

Actually, now that i think about it, i would let the dealer handle it. That way if they mess it up you can make them replace/paint, whatever it is they would do...
