Not so.  The RV8 shell did, and the heritage shell does, benefit from modern
treatments and paint processes so is significantly better than the
originals.  One would also assume that a current rebuild would get some
treatment of the internal panels e.g. Waxoyl.  A heritage or RV8 dip-painted
shell is better, cost aside, than a repaired shell as it is impossible to
get paint on clean metal inside box-sections on the latter.
