From that fourth picture it looks like you are going to need a LOT more filler! You are going to have to go out to about 18 inches wide to raise it to flat.

Ahhh, I remember my truck, it had an inch and a half of filler up there! TWO GALLONS of filler was applied before I touched it with sand paper.
