The painting proess from a retiree. The body goes through tanks to frist clean it. Then through about 7 tanks to treat and coat the body,the last one being the e-coat tank.After that the body goes in to a oven, to bake it at over 500.Out of the oven to the sanding booth,to sand out dirt,runs and any defects.Then the body goes to the sealer line where sealer is put into all the seams.From there the body goes to inspection, where they check the sealer,e-coat,and body out and repair as need.They then wipe down and clean.Then the body gets slof-chip added to the main area that will get all the chips.From there it gets primer added.Then to the oven again.After the oven it goes to the sanding booth to sand out dirt, runs and any ther defects.Then to a storage area, so when the bodys go through the top-coat booth, they can be spaced out.After the top-coat booth they to the oven again.Then to clear-coat,back to the oven.After the oven it goes to top-coat inspection,where they check the paint,and fix anything wrong with it.This is not all that goes into the painting of the body,but gives you a general I deal.ok just called america honda and expressed my concerns on the rust on the ridgelines. The customer care person said that he has worked at a honda dealer for two years before working at the call center and he has never had a complaint from anyone on the ridgelines rusting. If he is telling the truth maybe everyone having a rust issue should be calling them. He distanced himself from the manufacturing plants on how the metal is prepped and painted when I asked him what there procedures are.
That's not true. I just had the same issue and it was covered by Honda. The paint has a 3 yr warranty (thats what I was told) and for it to be covered by Honda that rust had to have started under the paint. Keep fighting it or take it to another dealer, they should fix it under warranty. It will all boil down to whether or not the Honda rep will give the dealership the ok or not. Take pictures of it and have the dealer take pictures and send them to the rep.Yes, I also found rust on the rear driver side passenger door. I asked the guy at the dealer about their warranty on rust and he told me is has to be rusted all the way through the metal to be covered under warranty. I'm not to happy about it.
