ummm, maybe you should buy some BONDO, then spread it on over the metal, let it harden then sand it down.

buy a gallon. and look for some cardboard to use as a mixing pallet and spreaders
second that^^^
make sure you roughen up the steel real good first and clean it off of dirt, oil and rust. Bondo is a 2 part mix, make sure you mix it right and spread it fast before it hardens, and not too thick. I use a wood paint mixing stick to mix it, and cardboard to spread it. Get a bunch of sandpaper, real rough to get the shape down, finer to smooth it out and get it ready for the final coat, and the super fine stuff to smooth it for paint.

u can also use this stuff called like glazing puddy. it goes over the sanded down bondo where u have like like bumps or flaws and just apply it with ur finger and waite for it to dry and sand. it sands out really well. :cool:

bondo body filler is bullshit

look for evercoat or mar-hayde products i like platinum filler (by bondo mar-hayde)it feathers nice and has very minimal shrinking


or your best bet is to go to an automotive paint supply store
get a good filler i got names of good shit but i can't remember them right now and i don't have my products folder with me

evercoat, and as for glaze, If the mud is right you don't need it must of the time. But it does work.
