Not sure what you are asking. Base/clear can have orange peel. Sand with 1200-1500 and cut/buff. Seems the factory was having paint issues that day. What a shame.

I know where that grave is and probably is the reason the road has that little kick in it right there. The big highway was built in the early 50's, before that you would take the old Huntville highway that weaved through that area or Pulaski Pike or Butler Roads to go north.
