Finally, Something good has happened!! The paint inspector looked at my front bumper and told me that it would be repainted by Nissan under warranty. Luckily, I get to pick what shop does the work, so I can get the Stillen spoiler painted at the same time.

BTW, they do a "tape test" to see how well the paint is adhereing. They place a piece of masking tape on the affected area, and pull it off to see how much paint comes off with it. In my case, the tape pulled off basically all the paint! haha. That is what I call a BAD paintjob.

I also asked the inspector about what cars seem to have the worst paint (he also does inspections for GM cars and Toyota.) He said that the Nissan Xterra has the highest number of claims. He says they are already seeing RUST on those things!! Man, Nissan has to get their act together on the paint work.

Lucky dog!!! Spoilerette painted for free! Maybe I should chip my whole car just so that it gets a paint-over. :D You're picking the shop, that's cool. But if your whole car chipped over, would you be able to pick the color?

I know this isn't a race story or anything, but I have the urge to say it... Good kill! :D

The problem wasn't chips (well, that was a problem too, but they wouldn't repaint the bumper because of it.) My bumper had paint peeling off of it.

But yes, I am very happy. Having the spoiler painted for free is a bonus. :)
