Subpar Paint Quality / Quality Control

Gary's graphics discussion spurred me to post this (I originally posted this in Gary's graphics discussion but decided to start a new thread as to not take away from Gary's discussion).



While I am overall satisfied with the quality of my coach, I feel that the paint job on my coach is sub-par. There are multiple paint runs on my rear cap and various other paint defects through out the coach (fish eyes, buffer marks under the clear coat).



How is the paint quality on your coach? Am I just being overly anal?

I have a few of these same types of paint runs on my 2019 Cornerstone.
I also had a couple of areas showing buffer marks under the clearcoat.
If you take your coach to a good paint shop, they can buff out those runs
in the clear coat fairly easy.
Seems like the Entegra Paint shop is running behind and getting in a hurry.

My 14 went back for almost a complete repaint, but it was painted during one of the coldest winters of record. The 19 is almost flawless. I thought the paint problems were a thing of the past. Sorry to hear of the issues.
As Don said, if there were any issues, NIRVC detail guy was going over my coach upon arrival. It looks like he did an outstanding job. I have one small spot on top of the front cap that I am probably the only one that will ever see it.

If not before, all of that should be handled at the 2 year "PDI" (I know there is a new name, but just cant over-write those memory traces)..

And no, you should not be seeing any of that IMO
