    No corrosion protection? Your putty work looked like garbage. The fender had ripples all over the damn place, plus glaze coat should go directly over your lightweight filler. What about the holes from the drill? Gonna weld those shut or what? If you're gonna fill over that atleast use some short strand fiberglass filler. I understand you probably have no training in any of it, but make sure you do research next time so you don't rust, or have your paint start falling off.

    Hey Your are doing a great job!!! Keep it up. Little tip with dollies and hammer. There are special hammers for use with dollies. Hold the Dollie tightly against the back of the panel. Tap on the front side of the pane on the high spot. LISTEN for a solid tap. If not a solid sound the Dollie is too loose or in the wrong place. Use a Dollie shaped nearest to the curve in the panel. Just keep moving the Dollie to the next high spot and tap with a tapping hammer. Don't wham it. Just light little taps. You can get a panel very smooth with dollies and hammers. It takes time. Lost art. No one knows how anymore. It's very satisfying to straighten a panel with dollies and hammer work. Keep up the great work! Oh yeah they are the cheapest way to straiten a panel.

    next time you use a slid hammer
    use a punch and hammer to make yiur holes.
    when you drill in holes its to clean of a cut so when you screw in and use the slid hammer it doesnt hold! it just comes out.
    but when you use a scratch owl
    a punch you can use your slid hammer
    screw in and pull as hard as you need and the screw wont come out.
