    I would be taking your truck to the dealership and get it documented at least.

    yeah, every mass produced car will have it. I saw the worst orange peel the other day on a freakin porsche!! If you want glass smooth, you could try polishing it out but the clear is so thin on mass produced cars, there's usually not enough to block out.

    Alternatively, custom paint job... but for the right job, that's between $5-10k

    The spots are probably just rust colored dirt and can come out with a clay bar
