I am wondering what type of paint Coachmen specified for exterior steel parts. My 2008 Freelander has severe rust on the few steel parts so I need to refinish the poor quality paint job done by Coachmen.
Here you can see the problem.
This area is protected from direct wheel spray but clearly the quality of metal prep specified by the factory makes me wonder what paint was used.
GM on the other hand did a 1st class job of both metal prep and painting. Here is an area from the wheel well that had rocks and road trash thrown at it by the tires and not a sign of rust.
When I spend the day removing the bumper, sandblasting the junk Coachmen called paint off, I want to be sure to use something better that whatever Coachmen spec called for.
Ideas or suggestions?
I haven't seen this poor of quality workmanship since my 1970 Pinto rust bucket.
