Hi,
I have the SLS in Signal Red(metallic red) and the car has no top color paint inside the hatch channels and also on the inside of the hatch(tailgate).:mad:
Does anyone else have a lack of top color inside the hatch? It's also the same on the underside of the bonnet(hood).
Before the Rio, I had a 2006 Fiat Punto, and it was properly finished inside the hatch, but did lack top color on the underside of the bonnet.
Am I the only one with this issue??

Its normal. Many companies only put top coat and clear coat on the external surface areas. My other car its the same, only external surfaces have top and clear coats. Internal surfaces are left in their base coats

I don't believe it's normal as they paint inside the door channels and the underside of the doors. On the underside of the bonnet, I can understand it.. but not the inside of the tailgate as it's another door..
