Ok 3 months, 3000 miles, and countless arguments about why i am on this site or TT and not watching " Trading Spaces" with my wife, I have my first problem!

On the roof of my galaxy black 04 crew i have a spot which looks to be like something was painted over while in production. To try and describe it, honestly, it looks like my truck has a nipple!!!!

I went to my dealer today and had the service manager look at it. he agreed i had a problem and told me about Nissans strict procedure with paint defects. He would have to take digital pictures, sent them to Nissan, and that would then have someone come out and take a look at it. Sounded like a very long drawn out process. But he did offer to get the ball rolling on my claim.

Here is where i need advice. To me, it looks like it is completely covered in paint and clearcoat ( well if black does have clearcoat, i don't think we have found an answer on that). The spot is on the roof, so the only one that will see it is me or someone on stilts. I just have a major fear about getting my factory paint removed, sanded, or whatever the procedure would be and then repainted. I thought i would go through the winter and see what happens but would like to know what you guys think.

I've read that a few have had this problem as well (or something like it). Personally, If it wasn't noticeable or bothered me, I'd leave it. But, still, get the pictures and get the claim rolling on it.

I wouldn't much worry about getting it repainted. Any good body shop can do that and you'd never tell the difference (great area to tape off up there)


But, then again....that's just my opinion.



And yes, I too have the same first problem as you....wife says "You're addicted to that site, aren't you?" LOL

Hi 04crew,

I have the EXACT same problem with my Galaxy Titan. You can see my post at

I decided that I just live with two "nipples" on the top of my Titan's roof. Same as you, I don't want to repaint the roof.
