I've got a '54 in the shop (long term project), and I had a question on the finish. On the tops of the fenders and in a few other areas, you can see what looks like the matting pattern of the fiberglass. It's faint, but definitely noticable if you look at it... is this considered normal? The owner of this car has had it since 1967 and had a repair done on the lower left grill opening, but other than that, there's no crash damage or evidence of bodywork. He's interested in painting it, but I want to be certain before telling him to do so (the old original once, restored 1000 times argument).
