    If anyone is going to advertise a vehicle as being “immaculate” then shouldn’t it be?
    Or does diamond plate (as an example) extend the definition.

    When I pulled the diamond plate off my CJ5 I found a straight body. I waxed under it before I put it back on. We have a tot of trees out in the northwest. I have blessed my diamond plate a few times.

    To echo Kurt’s comments, in my experience, in the PNW diamond plate was sometimes put on for protection (many trails used to wind very tightly between trees) and for looks (quite popular in the 70s/80s) rather than for hiding damage. Other times, it was used to cover damage, as my own father used diamond plate to cover some damage on a CJ-5 body he refurbed.

    I can remember trails in the Cascades (probably wider now) where we had to round a side hill corner by pivoting around a stump by laying the body against the stump (Manashtash Ridge Trail was particularly tight and designed for flat fenders and CJ-5s/M-38A1s jeeps).

    Now, that’s not to say that I’d call this one immaculate (for starters, the floor appears dirty and the windshield wiper wiring is not ‘immaculate’).
