Somebody told me privately of a problem with their paint that sounded like Die Back (where solvents don't get a chance to properly evaporate and get into the finish coat surface). But I can't say who it was to protect their privacy, since they clearly aren't going to post about the problem here themselves.garygid wrote:Do others see any similar problem?
I don't think so. I would just be sure to blast it with the hose with every wash, and maybe attack any caked mud with a flat bladed screwdriver first.garygid wrote:I think this should be in a different thread, but ...
Would the water/snow/salt "trap" be better with a drain hole drilled there?

Indeed, please do! Then hopefully they'll improve the build quality for those of us who are stuck having to wait a few more months to get our cars!garygid wrote:In any case, make the Nissan Task Force aware of this, so they can get the process QC back to the factory, to impove their build quality.
You might try some Black Again trim retorer: http://www.properautocare.com/blacagextrim.htmlmwalsh wrote: BTW, when waxing your car...DON'T WAX the glossy black plastic insert between the hood and the windshield. Unfortunately I did and mine now has a weird "sparkly" look because the wax has emphasized a sort of a white flecking embedded in the plastic. I think I'm going to have to hit mine with something else, maybe a black wax.
I tried some Mother's Back to Black, but it didn't seem to help - I've probably got to use dishwashing soap to strip the wax off first, and I haven't done that yet. It'll clearly have to wait until the next time I detail, but I've got a few things I can try.ttweed wrote:You might try some Black Again trim retorer: http://www.properautocare.com/blacagextrim.html
