    Glazing and spot putty will shrink like crazy and takes forever to dry with an application like that. I only use it for filling the very few pinholes that get past my filler and primer steps. When you spray over it with primer, it softens and shrinks back into the sandscratches below. I'd sand it off and get that surface perfect with just bondo.

    Spot putty is for filling in pin holes and rock chips etc. It is not strong enough for what you are doing.

    I buy bondo by the gallon and I get the Rage Gold brand because it is a good brand.

    For every cup of bondo add a teaspoon of hardener. Mix mix mix mix so it is all one color. Bondo chemically dries and it will be hard enough to re-shape in about 3 minutes then hard enough to finish sand in about 10. Still let it dry for about 1 hour before applying primer. Apply a nice two part epoxy primer to really seal the panel and sand it smooth with 600 grit wet or dry sand paper using a water bottle to keep it wet as you sand. This provides the very best and smoothest surface.

    Most of you guys are using spray cans so getting a two part epoxy primer is probably not going to work for you. What I would suggest is when you get the surface PERFECT and ready for primer, take it down to a body shop and have them prime and paint it for you. They'll probably charge you $50.00 to do a nice job. Most shops have a lot of left over paint so if you tell them you just want a basic silver or black or something and are not particular about an exact color, then they will not have to charge you extra for the paint.
