(Maybe others who have be sucessful in getting it covered can chime in, to helpfully help our bonneville buddies covered?)
1) Went to a dealership that had thier own paint shop. (and not just a small one)
2) Started with the paintshop manager, and didn't bother with the sales, administration or service group.
3) Let the paint manager know that I knew that GM had a paint process problem, and 'goll darn it' I was lucky enough to get one - - nicely. (They know about the issue, but if they 'know' you 'know' it seems to prevent the 'talk in circle'
4) ASked for him to get me in the paint schedule, offering to schedule a week out, so HE has time to get the paperwork taken care of.
Again, I'm not claiming that this will work for everyone, or anyone. It was successful for me. Anybody else will to share how they got success?
