Dust Specks and other Paint Blemishes

Took the ZL1 to the dealer about my paint, have about 20 spots that are messed up. I wonder how this got by QA?

They think they can buff them out....we shall see, I don't think so.

Do yourself a favor. Go out on the Chevy lot and look at other paint jobs, not only on Camaro's, but from other models as well..as closely as you have yours. Do it in bright light, from an angle on and be discriminating. After doing so I feel you may feel your car is within specifications. I did the same thing after looking over my car, and...I received a better understanding of current production vehicle finishes. Not saying you are not right, but, just try it.

Yeah, those are pretty nasty. Mines got quite a few too. I've owned Chevys my whole life and paint jobs have never been their strong suit. My ZL1 has a few, not quite as bad. I have AGM. You can see the primer on a few sections of the hood too where they skimped on the paint. I gotta be honest though, I had a 2012 SS. The body panels were off, trims were a little crooked etc. but my ZL1 is flawless, minus the paint ( could be better) but overall quality makes me proud of Chevy. They really stepped it up. In reality for what we paid for these cars we got a lot! I will take the magnetic ride, badass motor and power train and Launch control over a flawless paint job any day off the week. We got a supercar on a budget. Not downplaying your paint issue, that one in the middle picture is quite nasty, but fixable. Other car company's might have better paint jobs, but they will all get smoked on the track!

My 2011 2SS IOM paint was flawless. I am not complaining, just would expect that this would be better, dealer is working to fix it.

I only found one bad spot about the size of a dime on my hood. A good hand polishing took care of it. I have to say that this car with IOM looks 10x better than my 2010. In my SS I have not been able to find any dirt or bad spots in the paint, not even a run.

Oh, I didn't mean it that way. There's no doubt I would bring it to the dealer. I guess the QC guy needs glasses. They definitely should have caught that. Good luck.

Mine has several different blemishes, fisheye to name one. To fix it "properly" it would require major paint work to repair at a big risk for a few relatively small spots that are hard to see unless you get up to it and look from a trained eyes perspective. I'm not gambling with it. I documented it, but that's as far as I am willing to go because spot or area work is a coin toss. Repainting the whole car? I shudder at that thought.

mine is pretty good. the real issue is I don't trust dealer or repair paintwork. it usually is worse than the factory blems a year or two down the road.

Under flourencent light in my shop the over orange peel affect is there though.
I have notice that all these robotic two stage cars are like this under the right light though. most don't even notice it.

I also had a passenger side rear vlance issue right were it meats the rear quarter in thewheelwell fit issue.

I am not that trusting of dealer work anymore. every time I have had dealer or repair paint work in my life it substandard work. It takes time a patience to do really good body work and that just doesn't pay anymore.

I had the same thing on my roof molding like in photo #1. I used one of those magic erase sponge things(cant remember the name of it) with water and rubbed it a few times and re waxed the area. Its gone. Dont rub hard or it will scratch.

I have found at least three spots on mine. I look at it that I have to pick and choose my battles. They aren't as bad as yours but I notice them every time I wash it. I also don't trust my dealership or their bodyshop to do it right. My dealership buffed the hood insert so hard their are burn marks, which I haven't taken it back for as of yet, but I do plan on getting that taken care of. That battle, at least for me, is worth fighting. It looks like your dealer did an awesome job.

Im dealing with this issue right now. I have found over 50 debris spots in my paint. A couple of areas that are bad enough that it snatched my wash cloth out of my hand. As well as a black rim not painted all the way. Bought the car in NY live in NC and the dealer told me that since I didnt spend money with them they were not willing to spend money on me. So now I have GM CS involved and meeting with the dealer owner, service manager and district specialist tomorrow.

I have two dust specks on my car, but I'm so disappointed with initial quality I don't even care any more. If I spent 60k for a car like you I might not be so cool with it.

I hope everyone with these blemishes can get them taken care of like I did, It does suck, I was actually scared to say anything, thinking they would blame me, but they took care of it.

...could you elaborate a bit further about your comments on your disapointment, and your final price paid? They are a bit vague. Being ZL1 owners, we are welcome to feedback, pro or con.
