    dosnt look too bad now does it =)

    what ya plannin on doing now?

    get some bondo (not wood filler) at your closest auto store, and slop a few layers of that on there... sand the HELL out of it, THEN high-build primer, a few layers of paint, then a clearcoat and your all set.

    DONT GET BONDO!!!!









    Bondo *****, get some ever coat chromalite. It settles way way better then bondo and is easier to sand down.
