Wheel Well Liners Promotes Rust??
Big R ED posted a topic in 2014 - 2019 Silverado & SierraHas anyone ever removed their liners and inspected the wells' steel several years after being installed? My concern is, since the liner is not chemically bonded to the steel (eg undercoated, bed-coated, etc), there could be pockets of moisture trapped between the backside of the liner and the well steel, that never really evaporates. I would think this collected moisture could pose a real problem, especially at weld points. I understand that the liners themselves will protect the surface of the factory painted wells from being compromised from stones, etc., but what about small pinholes or shallow coatings that might exist in the factory paint (especially at welds). My '19 LD came with front liners, and I'm looking for some feedback for my rears.
Got a new truck the other day from Denooyer In Albany NY. Plan on keeping it a while so before I even bought anything I was already talking to some people about undercoating to prevent against rust week before this. Brief summary, Picked out the car Wednesday morning left Dealership at 10:45, Picked up the truck at 4PM same day. Was a little worried since it was only like 30 out that day and had less then 3-4 hours of dry time. Was told it was fine. Friday I had after market wheels put on. Yesterday when I was unloading my like NEW factory wheels with 60 miles on them I noticed over spray all over the back of the wheels. Wheels are aluminum. I know from doing black topping / seal-coating that will be almost impossible to get off with out wrecking the wheels finish, having to re-polish them. At this point I called up to bitch at the dealership as I was going to try and resell these wheels/rims. When I spoke to them I said to them what kind of shit job did they do and did I have to get on a creeper and inspect the work... Well below are the posted pictures of the fine work. At this point im not sure what to do. IN spots its so thick it actually dripped and isn't even dry STILL 4 days later. Also where the truck was lifted to put my new wheels on took the coating right off and is now peeling. They never removed my spare tire so its not sprayed under neither it but instead all over it. Also my exhausted was sprayed all over so I have been getting a nice toxic burning smell. Which reading on 3ms website your not suppose to spray(If thats the product they used) They missed tons of spots.its uneven, super heavy in spots to the point of dripping. pealing off and STILL WET!!!!!! I know reading up too thick can actually cause it to bubble like it is, peel and get water underneath which is worse then having nothing. This is just my typical luck. I'm gonna go in Monday and demand a full refund including tax interest since it was added into my payment. There pretty much no way of fixing it at this point. You can't strip this stuff off. I contacted GM direct to file a complaint, but if anyone else has had an issue please let me know.
I plan on getting the undercoat, and paint protection done at Uniglass Plus Zeibart. Have any of you guys used em before? They're giving me a great deal, and the undercoat also covers the rear wheel wells. I work in the oil patch, and often find myself on crappy gravel roads. Edit: sorry for posting in wrong forum, still learning where everything is
