    The reason you can see those imperfections is because of the light being reflected and my guess is that there may be a lot more imperfections in other areas.

    I think Fusor was the first to put spacing in the mix and if you only need a small amount the Fusor Caulk Gun Conversion Kit may be a low cost option.

    No need to strip the old paint unless it's peeling or cracking, just scuff it with some 600 or finer then paint.

    If the work has been kept warm you may be able to sand now but then wet sanding prior to spraying would not be as good as dry sanding. I'd probably dry sand with some 800 or finer then allow it to...

    The longest lasting repair would be to weld in a patch then seal it from behind but if you can't get behind it then I'd probably opt for aluminum tape and fiberglass. If done properly it could last...

    Yep, if I were doing it and wanted it to last I'd probably use a two part, self-leveling seam sealer to fill the low area, allow it to harden then use the double face tape to attach it to the vehicle.
