Hot or Not? (Fresh/Clean boxcar content)

So, I've been looking at this photo:

Fresher paint, but a beat up and wrinkled body.  So first attempt was a knife and screw driver from the inside to get the forklift bumps and scrapes started... But, it still needed the wavy panel look, so I tried polishing the paint on sections of the panels.  Hard to photograph under bright lights without everything getting washed out, but how does this look?

Working at Havelock and seeing cars just like that roll out of here every single day, I've gotta say that's a pretty damn good representation.  I really like how you got the wavy panel effect.

Hot. More of those indentations like you have by the door would be killer.

Maybe use a heated screwdriver to slightly soften the plastic.
