Dings and dents obvious? You bet!
My observation is that when things are made shiny, ALL flaws become HUGELY obvious. Think of that '56 T-bird, '48 Lincoln, ( or your favorite vehicle)!
ALL blemishes become more pronounced with a high gloss surface. It has to be PERFECT to be perfect!
I saw this more than a lot when I did the show circuit with a '62 Lincoln I used to own in a previous lifetime. There were lots of cars and owners! that would have been a lot better off with original condition finishes.
Have you ever seen that episode of "Antiques Roadshow" where the guy says - 'if this had the original finish/ patina, then it would be worth...."???
Just remember that this opinion is worth EXACTLY what you paid for it.
