    Update: the body shop was quite interested to hear that the body filler in the pix is quite likely original from the factory. Since they didn't use chemical stripper, there's no real reason to remove or replace any of the skim coat bondo. But, they are going to even up and polish any areas that need attention. My thanks to all the Stude experts and Avanti owners that helped me get the history and story right on this issue.

      There is a lot of good advice here. I will tell you from the point of view of a body man I know that a lot of shops will want to remove all th old bondo or whatever fillers might be in a car because if it happens to not be perfect and starts to lift a couple years down the road then you are mad at the body man when initially it looked good and had no problems visible at the time of painting. So that is why a lot os shops say we need to redo that so we can guarantee that other wise we will not guarantee it. I hope I made it as clear as mud fer ya.
