Actually you did not want it to drag because that could make the car have over steer or be considered loose in the rear end. We would heat the knuckles and reshape them to remove Ackerman so that the front end would roll through the turns. We would shift the added weight, adjust the springs or change the rear geometry to tighten or loosen the car in the turns.

But yeah you're right about screw ups in paint becoming custom paint. Two that I can think of are cob-webbing and the bowling ball, you can probably come up with more.
