This is great, thanks for keeping me grounded. One issue I was having is that this was mostly a high area, not so much of a low issue. This was right on the crease.So I used the porta power between a work bench and exterior part of the body to push the crease in a little with the chisel tip and I was able to hammer and dolly a lot of the high areas out. A straight edge and patience was used that this point (thanks Sam) and as all of you suggested I will move forward with the body filler. I do have a couple questions.

Tech69, when you say to "use tape to sand the top" what do you mean? I have heard of using tape to tape off a body line then apply filler over it. Also the bottom area (just under the body line crease) is not a flat surface, it acutally has a slight crown to it. So not sure if I can still keep it at 45 deg as the block. Any suggestion on how to handle that?

Deadbodyman, I don't understand when to use the long hard block.

Thanks agian
