New C6 ZO6 Vette lousy paint job.

Spied a new black ZO6 at the local Chevy dealer over the weekend. Since my son has an 03 ZO6 I thought I would take a look see. First thing I noticed was the crappy paint job. My first attempts at painting had less orange peel than this $72K Vette did, I was floored. How can Chevy, especially Corvette let a car go looking like this? The salesman came out all cocky talking about how fast the car was and how well it handled. I told him I already knew that but it needs a paint job, or at the very least a color sand and buff if there is enough clear on it to begin with.

My wife and I are going to the NSRA event in Louisville and we also have reservations to tour the Corvette assembly line in Bowling Green. May ask one of the Corvette people when they are going to correct the paint problems.

The whole problem is Bondoking is superviser of paint at the F250 plant.
If they hired him the problem would be solved!

The new car manufacturers think, if the car is fast, people won't see the crappy paint jobs. Also, if you will spend that kind of money, you can't see that well anyway. LOL

Hey Vince,

If your going, get the vin number on the one you looked at with some pics. Maybe, well just maybe (well probably not), someone may care in the quality division.

i wonder what kind of paint process they use in the plants anymore? freind just bought a brand new GMC Z-71 4x4 with a real pretty midnight metallic blue & silver accent but the same thing on his..alot of orange peal on it..folks like him dont notice it at all untill i pointed it out to him but folks like us look at it as a sore thumb sticking out..thats why the quality of cars seem to get less & less..if the folks dont notice it..the manufacturers dont care as long as it sells....
he asked me if i could color sand & buff it but i would be scared not knowing how THIN the clear coat is...
