New to bodywork, need some advice

I have just started doing body work on by truck bed and I have a couple of questions.

I am spending quite a bit of money on this thing so I don't want to cut corners.

As you can see from the picture below the box has seen better days, a typical work truck. No rust and very few big dents but lots of small dings.

I started pulling the dings with my stud welder and slide hammer and made some good progress. My question is should I be happy with the results or should I be trying for a better finish before going to primer and filler. I can't get to the back side with a dolly so I'm not sure how I would go about getting it better.

I haven't did anything to the closest dent.

I ask these questions only because I will obsess over it unless I know it is "Good"
