As you prime and block and prime and block the surface your lines naturally become more defined and sharp. The contour of the panel determines if they are straight. If you have a shallow wave near a line the line will follow the wave. So get your metalwork as straight as possible with good panel alignment and then block to perfection. Using a guidecoat you can block one plane of the panel and the straighness of the line will be easily visable, in other words-block one side of the line then the other. Hope this made sense, much easier to demonstrate than describe. Bob
