Quick update...

I worked on the rear fenders some more this weekend. I sanded down the first layer of bondo, tapped in some of the high spots and filled in some of the visible low spots. So far it seems like they'll come out decent. The shape is pretty much there, but there's a little filling and tapping here and there that needs to be done. And more sanding of coarse. Another weekend or two and I should be finished with them. This time I used a file to knock down and shaped the bondo as suggested.

These first three pictures are after sanding down the first layer.

Here's where I'm at after sanding down the second coat of bondo. Still a lot more work to do but it's getting there.
