I also wanted to add that there are a few spots that are down to bare metal now. I most likely did not fix some dents sufficiently before applying coatings. I was planning on respraying epoxy to seal in the primer, any spots that may require more putty, and protect any bare metal.

One more thing...

I've sanded most of the car with a block and sandpaper, but there are a lot of curves that make this very difficult and I was going through a ton of sandpaper without taking of much material. I switched to a smaller block with some red scotch brite and I went MUCH better. After using the scuff pads I went back to the large block and continued to level the panels with finer sandpaper--much easier than before. Has anyone else done this or is it bad practice?
