This is opposed to suspect initial signs of rust blistering from the spot the top right rear door, which is a painted metal surface. Anyone else experienced this condition on their Taco?
P.S. Truck build location was Mexico, as opposed to the various sites in the US, Canada, or Japan. Could be a potential QA issue in the paint process, or just shear lack of attention to detail; which could have led to an inadvertent surface contamination prior to paint???
I have blisters all over my truck, that looks like paint cracking from below the surface, but it had nothing to do with the prep of the paint surface, its the birds around my house that target the truck on extremely hot summer days, and there droppings eat the paint away, especially since i cannot see the roof of my truck, and when i washed my truck(i wash it every week), i noticed the bird droppings, after i washed them off, i noticed the paint looked like dry skin, with cracks..i tried to buff it out, didn't work. slowly it started turning white around the area, and i cant get it to go away!
Anyways thats probably nothing to do with your issue, just saying that it could happen. hope you find a solution...
