The flat surface idea is the way to go. You can easily see if there are high or low spots that need attention. The head is easy...the top end of the cylinder is a little harder unless you remove it from the crankcase. A good flat surface is essential for proper head gasket sealing but I'd take Joe's advice before doing anything. If it runs spite of what it looks like...leave it alone.
30 years ago ,I painted a Harley oil tank and used my wife's oven to bake it . Worked great for the paint but OOOOOOOOOOO did I hear about the stink in the house .
