The paint on the roof of the cab is cracking. Very small, hairline type cracks. It is in the two channels that run the length of the cab with the seam sealer in them. It started @ the back of the channel on both sides, right where the sealer joins the sheet metal. I'm thinking that the 100+ temps two weeks ago is at least partially to blame. Along with the truck sitting outside all the time.
Took it to two shops to get estimate to have it fixed, first words out of both their mouths was, "Isn't this under warranty?" "Umm, no. The truck is 5 years old", was my reply. So I guess my effort of washing, clay bar, waxing has not been wasted.
So, the point of this long winded post is, has this happened to anyone else's truck? Did you ever pin point a cause? How did you have your truck fixed?
The fix for mine seems to be grinding all of the seam sealer out of the channel, reapply new self leveling seam sealer, repaint & clear coat the whole roof panel. Oh yeah, hope it holds. Nobody is making any guarntees that it will. As both shops said that it could do it again.
