Steve I'm not Dale but from what I can tell things like creeses and folds seem to happen in shipping. When I get bodies directly from Protoform (JConcepts and Parma also) they rarely have a flaw. I see it muchmore when I get bodies from customers or order them from my LHS.
They get packed and shipped at Protoform sent to a distributor unpacked and stored (and probablt stacked) .Then repacked sometimes with other heavy products in the same box and sent to a shop ,and once again you might repete the same process to have it shipped to you.
Also this body looks great can't wait to get mine
