Mine will be in that picture. It is not door to panel, it IS panel/hood to facia.

I had a guy come up to me at a car show that stated he worked in the paint department for GM for 25 years. He went on to say how my paint did not match up.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my car! Just wish that was fixed

The color shifts on my Inferno Orange, not just from the door panel to the quarter panel, but anywhere there is an angle. It looks cool, can't understand why some felt it was a mismatch.

Your right- People can't read. It's not a paint problem on the door at the 1/4 panel , It's the shape of the two panels.

That's not the issue and just because your car has no paint issues does not mean that another customer does not have a paint issue.

I agree with you. I still think there were cars that were mismatched.

I've seen them in person and have pictures. However, people still won't believe it even after pictures. They'll point you to the bulletin and say GM's word is gold. People need to learn to think for themselves. Do you believe everything politicians tell the public?

What gets me is most of the paint problems I've read about were not door and quarters matching it was the bumber covers to the rest of the car. I don't see this saying anything about that. What magical theroy do they have about why paint is coming off thease cars or like my wifes ,areas that where never painted at all.

GM shouldn't even have put this out because no matter what they say people are going to believe what they want and still tell others to ignore the fact most cars are pretty perfect. The whole point I'm making is people seem to act as if this is a HUGE problem when in fact it isn't. Yes some cars may have a little mis-match(nothing is ever 100% perfect) but quit trying to blow it up as the majority of cars just because you may have a small problem with yours.

Prove this statement. You will not find one person who has this problem and will not reccommend the car to others. You are just stiring the pot.

Who is acting as if this is a HUGE problem? Who is blowing it up as something which is occuring to the majority of cars? Quit stiring the pot.

WOW who is blowing it up. Let's go back a couple months when at least one thread a day was popping up saying bad paint job, mismatched paint. Hell I remember one person being so dumb as to start one and show he had a mismatched painted IOM and took pictures and pointed out how the front was a different color then the side on the car and hood. Then made the mistake of taking the picture from a different angle and proving it was just the angle of the first pic but went on to defend it by saying no its mismatched.

Don't act like this board didn't have a problem with people trying to claim all IOM were all mismatched because it happened.

I agree that there are a lot of people posting about their mismatched paint but when were those threads made? April? May? Maybe they were legit at the time?

Like I said, the issue has been resolved and any car built today will not have mismatched paint. Let's just not automatically state that the customer is wrong/stupid when you have not even looked at their car.
