I don't think it is serious enough to require hard to sand and smooth out fiberglass. The problem with trying to feather it is that it ruins the lines on the edges as you can see carefully in the pic that the edges though relatively good are not perfect (at least not in my eyes) Basically whenever I sand the filler it takes down some fiberglass as well. You can see in the pic that I have several lines and edges to deal with.

I need to find an object similar to the shape somehow, it'll smooth it better than the flat sanding block.
