I am blocking and filling with "Rage" Extreme, but I think as the quarters are shaping up, and I switch to finer grits, I may need to use a different filling compound that flows a bit more.

What do you guys think is a good filler, I should use?

(I plan on 2K high build as will, after the filler.)

Also a tip is needed here. I find that at certain times, my filling goes well, with very few tooling lines in it. Other times I cannot seem to avoid them.

Are there any tips or suggestions, on this? When I go back to try and retool, the filler often gets even more messy.

There's a learning curve with filler application, how much, how much pressure, what angle, which direction.... The thinner coats are the toughest coats and you may want to consider using a polyester glaze like Evercoat's Metal Glaze to finish off the filler, it is thinner and easier to apply in light coats. Another option is to use a polyester primer like Featherfill, or featherfillG2, slicksand to name a few. These products are similar to a polyester glaze in but get sprayed on-no tool marks.
