Based on your post I suggest that you do not know who Pete Brock is along with his extensive knowledge and outstanding accomplishments over the last 6 1/2 decades.Does Mr. Brock know how to buff paint too? I'm always amazed of the lack of awareness that people have about how scratches and swirls are induced in paint from the ONES that work on paint. Sure, Mr. Brock you can lay on the car and you can put your phone and other items on the paint.
Aside from his few years at Shelby American not many people are aware that Mr. Brock was the youngest designer to ever be hired by General Motors and if I recall that was way back in 1955.
After 65 years in the automotive business which includes owning his own race team and also developing his own design studio I would suggest that he just might know a thing or two about the painting process and is a living legend in the automotive world.
Can't wait for the final results of this HEP R as this is history in the making!
