Factory Paint Runs

While sorting through the pile of parts I brought home, I noticed that this interior “knee knocker” cover which butts up against the dash has a big ole’ run in the paint! I guess the run is down low where ya don’t see it so much, but even so, would you accept this on your brand new Chevy? So much for GM quality!  Truth is, during dismantle of this car and several parts cars, I’ve noticed a lot of sloppy work. Maybe there’s truth to the slogan “beat to fit, paint to match!”  I’ll have to do a post some time on that subject.

Factory paint has runs. Also not the not-too-glossy finish. Maybe a little bit shinier than "egshell".
