    Hey mwerner1,

    I just finished mine, make sure you use that finishing putty after you've done the bondo once or twice, and sanded the bondo as smooth as possible, that putty will lay out a finished product...from personal experience, if the end result is not completly smooth, it will show with the final painting. Just my .02 let me know if you need any questions, I literally just finished mine this morning.
