So I was pretty stupid yesterday and I just got a this beautiful 2016 1500 30k miles in the crimson red and it came with theses butt ugly pinstripes so of course I did what any one would and went and got a 3M Pinstripe eraser wheel and took it to the pinstripes and my speculation is that I had the drill on too high of a setting possibly on the first section as you can see in the pictures it left like a yellowish streak mark in the paint. Then I turned the drill way done and suprize suprize the rest of the truck looks flawless. So what do you all recommend I do to correct that section? I’m really not even sure what to call the damage. Burnt? Thanks in advance.
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?)
I am going to apply a nano ceramic paint protectant to my 2020 Sierra 1500 Elevation X31 off-road. I did not purchase the $1K option at the dealer as that is a warranty instead of quality.
What nano ceramic protectants for the paint have you had great experience with? I am also looking for experiences with interior nano ceramic fabric protectors. All the research I done results in no correlation and no input from real life.
My '18 suffered bad hail damage. Hood, roof, and front quarter panels need replaced. PDR on everything else. Total payout from insurance is $11k.
I need to choose a body shop and am curious what I should look for. The Chevrolet dealership here has a collision center and I'm wondering about going to them. Particularly, my concern is getting good replacement parts and paint put on. I don't want crappy paint that doesn't match or last like OEM does, and was thinking the dealership shop could get the exact paint color directly. Or will I just end up paying more if I go there?

My rear drivers side window would not come down. This just started the other day. It would not work with the front or rear switch. no humming from the motor. Fuse is OK for the left side windows. I swapped out the switch from the passenger side and still didnt work. However the driver's switch worked fine on the other side. I then removed the regulator assembly by having to cut the cable since the window was up. I removed the motor and bench tested it and it ran with 12V put to it. This leaves just the main front door switch assembly. My question is would a bad front switch cause the back switch not to work?? Also when I press the switch , I get a brief buzzing sound from the switch. Also with the motor connected, it still isnt turning so it wasn't a jammed cable on the regulator. I am getting to the end of what I can troubleshoot, and I hope it doesn't turn out to be a bad wire in the door harness. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
