I should have posted a picture.....
I borrowed my camera from my daughter and took one up close.
As you can see the pits are in a small area and not deep. The taped ball joints are original so I glass beaded them and coated with RPM.
What I am trying to do is:
Based on a post where it was stated that various chassis parts were made by different suppliers, and each supplier could have had a different gloss, I attempted to emulate that.
So, the main chassis is approximately 30% gloss and I used a semigloss for the control arms for a slightly glossier look.
Maybe using a 30% gloss would minimize the eye catching effect of the scars.
My wife brought up an interesting point....if the scars were in a body panel, would you paint over it or smooth it first.
Hmmm...never thought of it that way. It's amazing how one can get neck deep into restore details.
