Dull paint, overspray, blotches, flat spots are the norm from here on out. If maintenance was performed, spot painting was done without regard for matching. Nothing like an "over-restored" Corsair of today which is painted to "impress the general public" with how nice it looks. That was not a consideration for ANY of these aircraft.
