Dam is it just me or does the NNBS trucks paint chip super easy. Every time i look at my truck it seems to have another tiny paint chip. I get them on the front of my hood, lower fender wells, ect... Just seeing if anyone has that same problem going on too. I had my 03 for over two years and had less paint chips in it than my new 09 that i"ve had for less than 6 months. Man whats the deal!!!!!

:word:

Most(if not all) car companies run this problem now. They were forced to go to water based paint for environmental reasons, and it just seems super thin. I got paint chips up the wazoo on mine as well.

Im effing pissed about this also!! Mine is a 08 and i have never seen as many paint chips. My 05 SSS had almost none and back then i did way more HW driving. I wonder if GM will do anything about it?

Yeah they put those stupid looking 3m film things on the bedsides.

Like said before, they didn't just put one coat of base on, but waterborne has about half the mil thickness of traditional solvent based paints. Less paint=less cushion=more rock chips.
