Default weird body problem

...The body of my car that is. When i look at my door and rear quarter panels from an angle, i see almost door ding looking things, except they are way fainter and not door dings, i dont think they ever were.

The weird thing is, theyre on like the door, they are regularly spaced on the same height on the door, all the way across it. The placing almost looks like its where each spot weld is for the inner bracing of the door.

What is this? I have had PDR before, do they use agents to make the metal expand and contract? That could explain why these welds are showing up as almost mini little dings.

Its just kinda annoying, and i'm wondering why its happening.

Was your car ever in a wreck? Could just be shoddy body work

yes, it was in a wreck, but this is on both sides. identical features, and only one side was in the wreck.

what exactly do you mean by shoddy body work?

If it's less than perfect, it's easy to tell when a car has been in a wreck. It looks slightly wavy on mine (goddamned hit and run).

actually my quarter panel and door was replaced.

and anyway, this is a very regular thing, is this the welds showing thru? why would that happen?
I can try and get a picture, but i doubt if it would work out.
