The primer is not the problem. As you can see in the photos I posted, the
wrinkle is nearly perfect on all BUT the lid. The sides have a wonderful
wrinkle. As mentioned before, the lid showed some defect when I first
primed it. It was visible before I applied the wrinkle. Before I started
the wrinkle, I even went back down to the metal, sanded deeper, cleaned well
and re-primed. Same thing. That's when I decided it was good enough for
