Thanks!
Finally satisfied with the lines and shapes. It will still need more sanding to get it smooth enough for paint... I also sealed the drip rails.... put on a coat of epoxy primer and left the garage happy! :giggle:

Did a part to try the next step....hand sanding 320 grit soft pad and then white primer. This was just a 20 minute job.... next time I'll try to do the rest of the body.

The dent in the roof (yellow circle) created a crease (red line). In order to get the metal back to it's original shape I had to push the dent (low spot) up from the inside using the dolly. While doing that I used the hammer to tap down the crease (high spot). I got it to where the low spot was minimal .... less then half a millimeter as you can see by the light shining under the putty knife. Applied some body filler, next time I'll sand it down and reapply primer. Only took me half an hour so that's not too bad.😃

The grey spot in the first pics is what is left of the filler after sanding (from the dent I repaired wednesday). I also sanded the left rear quarter, trunk area en back light and sprayed some primer.
