Nice job do both the inside and outside then go over that with some tiger hair type bondo then over that with a light filler. Off to a great start well done for your first time . Do the inside of the bigger hole first .
The smaller holes you could get away with using the tiger hair on and not the resin/cloth

Two things 1. I hope your working in temps close to 65 in order for it to cure for a strong an long lasting repair. 2 always use proper ppe when messing with body fillers that require a hardener ( gloves an a mask) liquid hardener contains methal ethyl ketone which is highly toxic so plenty of fresh air an a mask/ respirator would be a good idea as well. Sorry im.a body guy an my college teacher drilled ppe to us throughout the program

Well I applied everything outside and after a few minutes I bring it inside to my wife's art studio to sit and set up. And yea I have the painters mask and gloves for that stuff. Thanks for the tips!

I spoke to Kyle 2 and he said your going so you need to get the hood done , heck just put it back on and bring it up.
Well If that show is June I hope to have my hood dome by then. But I want to do the rims, and get new tires, etc.... I'm on the hunt for a new shift quadrant, I do not think I can repair the one that is on mine it's I'm pretty rough shape . Bit all these things take time.

Itching to get back at it. I'm thinking this weekend. The snow and cold weather kinda shut me down for a little. So I see it is supposed to get warmer this weekend. And can finish the other side of the big hole then grab some filler to go over everything. So I can start to look at painting. I will post a pic later for your opinion a few small crack towards the steering wheel end of the hood wondering if I should lay some fiberglass over it or body filler might do it. I'll post as soon as I get more done.

Stay away from the body filler as much as possible, as it will eventually crack due to vibration. Maybe build it up with just resin. Would make the cracks a whole lot stronger than the body filler.
