filling the sinker marks correctly

19 January 2015 - 07:18 PM

Hello, i am having trouble mastering the most elementary of body filling tasks, that of filling the sinker marks on the trunk lid. The photo is of a '64 Pontiac Bonneville convertible, with the sinker marks circled. I used bondo over a thin guide coat of lacquer primer, sanded it to what i thought was smooth (didn't feel anything when running my finger over them), then hit it again a couple of times with the primer, sanded that with 600 and 1000, then shot the lacquer color.   i could have sworn that i'd filled the sinker marks correctly but obviously i didn't.  the bondo looks like it's too low.
