I like using the fiberglass hair body filler if its a big area, then follow up with regular bondo and then light weight stuff before spot putty to fill the final pinholes. I never tried the real expensive ones that are supposed to eliminate the last two steps but do believe you get what you pay for.

Yeah, and the real high end stuff, they put a dust coat of black or dark red over the car so when the wet sand it they can see where the black is staying below the surface.
