Most of the GN and GNX's had a terrible finish from the factory. I remember stripping and repainting a bunch
of them due to customer complaints to GM. I miss my GNX but I do not miss trying to keep it Clean...

Mark, its been painted.. A while back though. Paint is about 15 years old.

I had an 86 in the early 90s and it had already been repainted. I heard it wasn't uncommon

Can confirm the paint is garbage on them from the factory. My grandfather's was stored in a barn, cloudy as hell (May be from storage) and riddled with orange peel. It had to be repaired on the lower driver's side, which is cracking badly. It's only got 30,000 miles, but it looks like it's got 5x that.
