After reading some of these post I see where some say keep it with the original look. That's fine, but some cars are totally awful. There are waves that the manufacturer didn't put in. If you look at cars from the 40's, 50's & 60's that were never touched, the body panels are straight (NO WAVES). The manufacturer didn't put these in...........bad bodymen did. And what about the guy who sands without a block..........finger ripples galore. These were not factory imperfections. When I see this kind of workmanship, I just walk by that car, and believe me, there are many at some big shows. These are cars that someone paid to have some expert do. I find more & more people don't even recognize bad bodywork. I just do it for a hobby on my cars, but before I color that car, those panels have to be perfect, and it's alot of work that's rewarding.......
