From my experience with another dealer and a 1985 truck, do the masking tape thing I suggested. The body shop would only fix one or two spots and I'd have to point the others out again. The third time, I took a roll of masking tape and hit every spot (and used up a lot of tape in the process). The truck's paint had a lot of dirt in it. That time, they got all the spots but burned through the paint on the break line that ran down both sides of the truck when they buffed it out. I finally got it fixed and was overjoyed when that dealer was one of the dealers that got whacked by GM.

Overall, mine looks pretty good on my black 2015 Silverado and white diamond Tahoe. However, they are not perfect. I noticed that the roof on my Silverado has several pin hole type spots/divets where it appears you can see the primer below. There is one spot on the Tahoe where the hood/fender meets the a pillar. It appears like there is a piece of 7 mm long by 1 mm wide debris (like a piece of wire) under the paint. I haven't checked out every square inch, but not perfect. I will probably fix the Tahoe, but not mess with the truck.

Also, one of the black trucks I looked at on the dealers had a huge 3" long x 1" wide paint smear on the rocker panel. That looked horrible and should have been caught before it left the mfg.

Here is the effed up paint on my wife's Tahoe. It's really noticeable on the white diamond tricoat paint, fortunately the rest looks good. I think they can sand this down and buff it without much of a problem. I was going to do it myself, but I figured if I screwed it up then I owned it.
