Our 05 Chevy has the same paint problems as virtually every other one I see on the road. Recently, it really started flaking off, so my brother said that's it I'm done!!! I'm painting it. He picked up all the professional toys and did a bang up job at our shop. Just some touch up on a handful of little areas starting to get bigger and it will be back to normal.

nice, looks good. Getting good at vinyl wrapping is also a cool skill to have these days, the vinyl is so cheap lasts forever and you can wrap literally anything.

Getting ready to do all the emblems and steering wheel black on my 07 suburban

Very nice job, really. Just don't forget the spot on the roof on driver's side. I've done a few painting jobs myself ( not as meticulous ones) and forgot to touch up big spot on the roof, just because I was admiring everything done below . Someone finally told me, what's up......

Thanks!
Each side of the roof and 3 small spots on the doors. Blending it in is going to be easier on them. He really did a great job for knocking it over the weekend. We bolted the front end together this morning and rode together today. We almost never work together anymore, nice we each had a good helper as we switched off on the wand.

I hate how Chevy vans do this. My Ford is 13 years older and the paint isn't peeling off like my newer Chevy.

Chevy products in certain colors seem to develop the mange. I don't know if it is their process for painting at the factory, the paint itself, or the combination of the two that causes it.
