I will b doing the same...Solution...Provide them with the wash mitt and towels and tell them you wish to be present.
In fact, I plan to be there to watch my vette come off the truck and watch it go through the entire process until it's turned over to me.
I am convinced that the plastic shipping cover contributed to clear coat scratches on the top of my rear spoiler and perhaps the trunk lid. I do not have paint issues anywhere else and I am not educated enough in paint to appreciate orange peel. I will eventually have paint correction and possibly CQuartz Finest applied. One step at a time.Hate the thought of someone washing the car with a bucket of dirty water and a mitt used for the wheels and rocker panel areas. And you think the plastic shipping cover left marks?
I agree Glen. The only "good" news is that the scratches are not deep and I am confident that they can be polished out. It's kind of strange to put so much into engineering a car such as this and then not protect it in transport. I guess that it's not any stranger than a dealership doing things like bad wash jobs, pre-installing front license plate frames that scuff the paint on the nose, or leaving the adhesive (that attaches the plastic covering inside the interior) un-removed. Add to that my car sat on the showroom floor for one week before I bought it. Who knows what happened in that period of time?There is absolutely no question the shipping cover can cause marring and scratches, no matter how soft it is, environmental debris caught between the cover and the paint will just grind on it when subjected to the wind of moving. The only real way to keep the surface pristine is the adhesive Mylar sheets that others use or covered transport.The cover is supposed to seal the car off, but sometimes, that's not happening.
