  • A Quality Problem Seen for the First Time Today

    I just picked up this Stealth at WalMart on my way to work this morning and was happy to find it. As I unpackaged it, I saw something in the passenger door window, and assumed it was loose plastic from somewhere. NOPE- it definitetly metal, and it is not budging under pressure. I am assuming it was not cast or stamped out properly and remains part of the body. As I don't want to cause further damage by forcing the issue, I may just paint the panel black and call it a day. If anyone has any better suggestions- please let me know!

    John, do you have an editing program? I would edit it out. If you don't have a program I would suggest Adobe Elements you can find it at Staples. It helps me with most and I still don't have the skill of photo-chopping like Jack but you may and you can capitalize on that. Sorry dude it happened to you.
    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

      I wish it were only a picture issue - I could fairly easily tackle the editing with MS Paint. Unfortunately the car was cast with a permanent metal sunshade in the passenger door area. I resorted to using a black Sharpie to make it less obvious. Not the end of the world, but I'd just never seen another diecast car with a defect like this until this morning. It looks a lot less obvious now from a distance.

        Shoot, take it back to Walmart and say it's defective what do you have to lose?
