I went to a dealership today that has a lot of tundras on the lot to reconfirm that all the trucks come with shit paint.. And they do lol. The only one that looks halfway decent is white. Time to read up on proper polish technique.

How to FIX Orange Peel paint or Clear Coat

Walking around the work parking lot, my car is easily the most noticeable in terms of orange peel (comparing against other toyotas and other manufacturers). The Mercedes in the parking lot are pretty bad as well. Anyway, here is a pic showing a couple of areas. The whole truck looks like this. So, what say you... pretty standard? Shitty end of the regularly shitty paint spectrum? Thats pretty bad dude?

Thanks in advance.

I had the same thing on my metallic black. It's a truck I wasn't expecting a perfect paint job. I haven't noticed it since I've detailed the truck a few times. I've noticed this on all of the tundras on my local dealership lot. I just thought it was the tundra paint.

Mine looks the say way as well...except for the 3 spots on the side where some blemishes were sanded out already. Those don't have a hint of orange peel.

I'm too scared to try and do a polish on mine.

Sorry dude.. It's not a maybach or Bentley. It's a Tundra we are talking about here. Live with it. ;-)


Oh yeah- "a bag of cash"... could be half from 1,000??

White has its problems too! I have two 2014 white and I had to do a lot to get it to where I was ok with it. These are work trucks but I have to deal with "rail dust " here in n.j. I did clay bar, polish, seal coat, and wax . I keep up on washing and quick wax to protect seal coat

Agreed but some are more anal than others... I take better care of my tundra than my 29 ford . I am in my tundra very day. Not garage kept. My ford is driving hard and does see the rain. It is garaged other wise. So no need to be as anal in my eyes. Other people would see it different . the 29 should be miticulous. My tundra is worth more! At least now..
Don't get me wrong, I won't let the 29 go to shit. It is just persective

I repainted mine a couple years ago and applied 5 coats of clear. I did that so I could wet sand the clear really well and polish it out slick. Well it did, but there are cons to having a slick finish. I feel like it really shows the imperfections more and is more susceptible to marring and micro scratching. The stock 202 is definitely base coat clear coat unless something has changed since 2007. You'll know pretty quick once you start sanding. Either way it can be leveled and polished. It's a ton of work.

If my 202 black 2010 had any clear, it was super thin. I mean super super thin.

I could rub it with compound by hand and get black on the pad fwiw.

It didn't look bad. But just scratched easier than any other black vehicle I have had. And I have had more black vehicles than any other color.

I was always buffing scratches when I would get black pad. It wasn't bad black, but a hint I guess.
