Crappy Paint Spotted in Traffic, parking lots etc.
« on: March 25, 2015, 09:04:26 PM »
Ok, not a contest (yet) but I just spotted another paint job that caught my eye today at a light...I had to take a photo of it to post here.

Lets see what you see.

My wife and kids notice stuff like that now. 

Watching a DVR'd episode of Blacklist last night, there was a black BWM 5 series on screen, and my son goes "that paint looks horrible. Look at all the swirls"

Yea, my son does now too. Funny thing happened when one of his buddies stopped over last week though. He asked the kid (in front of me) if the swirls in his (black) paint bothered him. The kid replied, "What swirls?"

Saw this one in traffic on my way to the North Shore yesterday.



That is rust not dirt on the life gate.

What year do you wager that is?   That's not good.

I think that is the 2004 to 2009 MY rear.
- I did a quick 2006 rear image search, and it looks like that one with the handle and fascia around the plate.

It is not good, but that is GM.  The Mrs has the rust enhancer flaps on the bottom of the doors.
- they need to be picked up every week and cleaned under them, so they do not rust the bottom of the door.
