I wasn't gonna reply to this but , Brian B made a very good point.

I did NOT want my 59 to be any straighter or have the doors fit better than
they did when new.
And the tops of those fins/wings----'bout as flat as the Pismo Dunes.
I used 2 59s for parts and the doors/tailgate did not line up for beans on any of 'em.

But, I can understand a body/paint guy wanting perfection. This person, in a sense, signs everything he does. I'm sure he would not want his name on a less than perfect job.

My 66 Elky-----factory fit and finish-----Blea!!!
I have no intention of making it perfect, perhaps a bit better, not perfect.
All these minor factory imperfections----add a bit of character

But then----the 59 and the 66 are driven pretty regularly.

Bryan
