First of many mistakes

OK, I have filled-in a few blemishes on the tank and fender and I did it in a couple of stages.
I presume the different colours showing through on the tank (pic attached) is because I mixed different proportions of hardener at each filling stage.
Will this "bleed" show through at a later stage?
It still needs priming yet and I hope that covers it.
Also as I am a complete novice at this; do I need to cover ALL of the metal, or will the two-part primer take care of that?

There will be those who exclaim that a particular primer will cover that no problem...that said if it were me I would float another "skim"coat of a two part putty and not trust any primer to take it from here so to speak.. The picture shows you have been putting in the hours and effort and are real close and maybe you could call it primer time but first read this one anyway...

P.S. give those high spots where the metal is coming through a gental tap with a pointy hammer ...

I would go with an application of POLYESTER PRIMER if needs another coat of putty. The polyester primer will fill just as much as a skim coat of polyester putty but be WAY easier to sand being it won't be spread out like a wedding cake icing.

Thanx for the tips guys,
I'm goina lay a coat of poly primer on it (2 if I think it needs it) and sand that.
Being a novice I found it difficult enough to lay the bondo with a flat spreader over all the round curvy bits. I'm goina do the primer today after work, I will probably start a new thread after that as I'm sure to **** it up somehow
