I covered chrome lettering using rustoleum/plastidip for the letters on left/right/rear:
I actually want to plastidip the handles too but that's too difficult for me.Helps give that murdered look Another thing I really appreciate about the RAV4 Hybrid, are the chrome handles. They feel substantial, and nice in the hand, when using. Now, I am not trying to give you ideas about painting more chrome, just really appreciate a detail I did not initially notice.
All the RAV4 Hybrids were shipped from Japan, including mine, and I do not have these paint issues on my RAV4 Hybrid. So it was not without exception.The cars were shipped from japan and have these paint issues without exception up to now.
Your cars are assembled in canada, aren't they?
I have the same color as yours, and was admiring how nice yours looked, in your photos. Now I know your secret, no rainy days Although I live where it rains more often, I have to say, I am glad now, I got several good coats of wax on, when I got it in June.My hybrid was also built in Japan according to the first letter of the VIN.
The weather here in bay area / southern california is very mild. No freezing temperatures
and just a little rain. These conditions are very nice to vehicles in general regarding paint/rust.
Yeah a good wax coat and a 13 megapixel camera makes really nice photos for forum sites.I have the same color as yours, and was admiring how nice yours looked, in your photos.
