Time For a New Paint Job

It appears that my paint is literally falling off on my truck. I showed Lents earlier today and he agrees that my paint is coming off. The bottom corner of the front passenger door has no paint at all, its not even blue Plus lents said my clear coat finish looks like shit. So now im looking around for paint shops instead of places to get my lift done at, its always one thing after another, also my temperature/compass gauge broke, Lents fixed it but it broke on my way back home...shit, Ill have pictures of my paintless corner on my door later

Didn't you have your truck in a few months ago for damage repair? Did it come with any kind of warranty?

I hit a deer not to long ago, but that was all front end damage, even then that shitty toyota bodyshop didnt do the best of job, they left a broken clip on one of my fenders so the front part of the passenger fender is flush with the truck and they put a nice long scratch on my grille surround. But i am convinced that my truck was in an accident before i bought her, im gonna ask the originally owner soon cause it sure looks like it was side swiped on the passenger side front fender area, the area at the beginning of the door and the rear of the fender, you know what im talking about right?

They should, just take it in and show them.. and get them to fix the passenger side fender clip too. That's the only thign that worries me is that everything is going to start breaking right after I run out of the warranty.

dude no joke, those paint jobs are strong, you could throw a rock at a bimmers paint job and it would dent and most likely not scratch. im trying to aim for a whole new paint job for my truck

Lol you aint lying. Gonna be spendy but i getcha, however if you do go that route make sure to ask for an extra clear coat. It'll help keep the actuall paint from getting all jacked up.

You can adjust the height of the hood latch, too low the hood won't close and too high you get the problem you're having.
