    i need to do body work and paint done on my trunk
    I have 6 holes in the trunk from some stupid wing that was on it...i filled the holes with bondo but the metal is all pull out from wing...how should i sand the metal down to make it smooth again....also i want to repaint the whole trunk because it has a lot of scratches. Should i sand it all down and primer it and paint or is there a better way to do it....will the paint match even if i buy the same paint online...how much paint wood i need? thanks

    Bondo isn't going to cut it. That will pop back out in no time and will cause the paint around it to crack.

    The holes need to be welded shut.
