Default Looming Paint Disaster.....

I cringe at seeing these C7's sitting outside the plant knowing they will put covers on them to ship......with airborne dirt/dust, etc.,.....and if they cover them without a good cleaning.....the installation of the cover and the air moving it on the car during transport makes me very nervous. I would rather they don't even cover my car after it sits there for what could be several days.

Hopefully they are smart enough to not put covers on a dirty car.

You would hope that would be the case but you just never know.

I say at seeing these C7s outside the plant. They know how to treat them so as to avoid paint damage. Someone want to estimate how much retail value is shown in that photo? And then how many rolling advertisements they represent?

I bet somebody around here knows what their process is. Hopefully they get cleaned up.

Something tells me they've seen that modern marvel called "an automated car wash".

I was fixing to use those very words, you beat me to it . Could be pre-production models. FWIW and knock on wood something doesn't turn into an incident, I haven't had a new car with paint issues from shipping since the 60's. And far as I know none of them including my Lexus had a cover.
