Edit guitar D.I. tracks BEFORE reamping?

Edit guitar D.I. tracks BEFORE reamping?

How do YOU do it?
Do you edit out string squeaks, (unwanted) palm thumps and sloppy string damping on the DI track before sending it back out to the amp?
Do you tighten the player's timing?
Add ITB noise reduction or EQ?
Obviously, with doubled tracks there's the need to keep SOME inconsistencies.
So...how deep do you edit (if at all) before reamping a track, how perfect is the raw guitar track that goes to the amp?

I do all edits and then reamp. However, I judge what to edit with the original "amped" track (in my case an amp sim). I dont rely on the di track, since some things like string squeaks can change dramatically when run through a hi gain amp (or again in my case the amp sim).

I tend to wait for the reamp moment to cut things like handmovements or other squeeks. In my experince the amp sim seems a little more sensitive for such things. At least with higher gain settings. So just in case of getting that "live" touch to the recording I wait to the last moment.

But that's me

What happens if you get through the entire record and, now that you're hearing the DI guitar track for the first time thru the amp, you wish you had used a gtr with single coils instead?

I use an amp sim setup to sound close to what I want from the final sound, so I don't have surprises like this. The reamp process just let me tweak a bit for that last 10%.
