It'll be much easier on you if you epoxy the metal first,use a sandable epoxy then guide coat the epoxy.After everything has cured start blocking and you'll see just how bad it is.The centers of a roof can be very flimsy so It'll be nearly impossable to sand any bondo without it flexing ,so to make life easier you'll need to reinforce the inside to stiffen it up enough to sand.Theres a lot of ways to do this ,like gluing paint paddles to the inside.The method I like (because I have a wood shop at hand) is to cut long lengths of wood at the thickness and width of a paint paddle but long enough to reach from one end to the other,use hot glue or if you can, wedge them into a channel with no glue.space them about 6" apart and your all set...I always remove them afterwards but its up to you.
