You should be happy with your crappy paint job. I've heard of people paying 10k to 20k for a professional paint job on their late 50's to early 60's Vette. Then later having it stripped for a worse paint job so it would look factory and pass inspection.
At the Vettes over the Rockies event this year, one of the factory execs. in attendance was asked about this very problem by an owner of 3 C-6's. The response was that they knew of the problem, return the car to the dealer for a warranty fix (in his case it was a light sand/buff job that made little improvement) but if you complain enough you might get a repaint.
More importantly, he also said they have noticed that the paint on the flat surfaces such as the hood, roof and deck do not have as bad orange peel and said they were in the process of changing how they will paint the cars in the future. They will paint the finders and doors laying flat before install. Has anyone noticed any improvement in the newer cars? Guess they haven't made the productioin change yet... ya think?:confused
I'm sure Corvette must be more picky than the Truck Plant, I've just retired and as far as I'm concerened GM quit worrying about paint defects about 10yrs ago unless it's really bad the vehical gets bought off on the "care line"..employees write the defects up and the supervision "buy's em off" so it gets fixed at the dealer or it's the owners fault when he drives off the lot (dents etc.). I advise anyone buying a new vehical to inspect it REALLY good before leaving the dealership!
All they are going to do is wet sand w/1500 paper and buff it back out.. what's the big deal ? if it's done right the car is going to look great.. wish i could go back and get my atomic orange done but my looks good . w/ your color being white, that's a easy fix
