BINGO. This was a MAJOR issue on Corvette several years ago. In fact my Arctic White 99 vette had it bad. GM/Chevy published a TSB. Turns out I/WE were able to get it out with a good Clay Bar and after several coats of ZAINO the paint looked flawless. I sold the car to a club buddy and to this day (over 10 years old) the paint and finish still look marvelous.

Ask them to try a Clyy Bar followed by some ZAINO. It's far cheaper that some of the other options being offered and may actually solve the problem.

Go get yourself another Toyota and while you're at it open up a new checking account in Japan which is were you should be living.

Will have to repaint

They aree going to have to repaint. I found another car at a different dealership and my dealership will let me out of mine. It wasnt the dealers fault it must have gotten hydrolic fluid from shipping or something. It had at least a hundred spots on it. I will pick up the new one tomorrow wish me luck.

You are correct, and that is why GM has traditionally done so much better than the competition in dealership satisfaction surveys.

I was objecting to the post that automatically stated that GM blew it because the dealer didn't immediately do something.

You can't go back in time and fix shipping damage or who knows what may have happened to this car.

But if what he wants is to have the car with the early VIN AND have it have a factory paint job his options are few. Reordering won't fix that nor will repainting.

I am just frustrated with all the negativity on this site which I thought was a Camaro and by default, GM, enthusiast site.

Often, it is not.

Don't fret it #3. The site is full of Camaro/GM enthusiast who still keep the faith. They don't get as noticed because they don't post without something constructive or on topic to say. Negative posts are made by a fraction of the community.

To the OP, I hope everything works out well without too much heart ache.

I had a number of spots on my hood, roof and trunk (particularly the trunk). After a careful wash, Meguiar's paint cleaner, Zaino clay bar, Meguiar's Scratch X and Zaino polish they have either disappeared or are barely noticeable. I thought the spots were from pollen. They had a crusty layer that once removed still left an etching in the top finish.

Good luck OP in getting something worked out.

I saw an Aqua blue which one of our members received 2 weeks ago and I noticed a tiny perfectly round circle about 1/8 of an inch round with no paint on it. The owner said it was road rage but I travel accross country every year from NY to AZ and believe me I know what road rage is. No way it looks more like a miss or a perfect air bubble, to round and perfect to be road rage. Sorry GM you guys need to do more inspections before shipping.

My SIM 2ss had a bad spot in the paint about 2" in diameter on the drivers rear quarter. was a real eyesore in sunny weather. they tried to buff it out but it was the paint. almost looked like someone used a brush to wipe off a drip. I'm getting it repainted and its getting done by an outside shop. vin 1771.
