Hey All! New to the site and new Chevrolet owner. I have a 17' Silverado in the Scar'e blue (or deep ocean metallic) Anyway its new to me but only has 30000kms (18700 miles) on it and I seem to notice the paint is weak! I have a ton of scratches on the rockers where the pervious owner must of dragged his feet to get it and even on my box right after the mud guard where its rocker guarded, i;ve noticed chips. Now its cold here in northern Ontario, but I bought a paint pen and spring is around the corner anyways! Do any of you have this issue of weak paint? and if so do any of you know about the strength of the primer (like will it take a while to rust?) Thanks !!!
My first new vehicle ever. I saved for a long time to be able to afford the truck I always wanted. Purchased March 2018 I take pride in my vehicles and possessions, take good care of them, park in bfe. Make sure to be within parking lines, not park next to beaters. Since purchasing my truck: 1. Bent rear bumper in parking lot accident. Both me and older gentleman were backing out at same time. He called it in, didn’t claim any damage to his truck but wanted to get my bumper fixed. Insurance says 50/50 fault and factoring in half my copay I get $800 -250 copay for $1200 estimate. Just living with tweaked bumper for now. Like a good neighbor my a$$ 2. Detailing truck and find a dime sized ding in roof. Paint is ok but something must have impacted at some point. Wow is the metal thin up there. Just leaning on it to wipe dry is all wavy and could leave elbow dimples if not careful. 3. washing truck today and notice nice deep scratch on passenger rear door. No paint marks from other car so maybe someone walking by with purse or, janitor keys? Good news is it’s only in the clear but deep enough it catches your fingernail. Truck is barely 3 months old! How do ya’ll deal with this? Don’t sweat the small stuff? Accept most people don’t give a F and always be on the lookout? Don’t drive your truck? I planned on keeping this forever but maybe I wouldn’t be so upset if I traded / upgraded every few years like some.
