Decided to tackle the rear arches on the mazda ready for mot then sale.
You may already know that I don't do bodywork as it is a dark art or voodoo or some such shit but fuck it!

chucked some normal grey primer on the upper part so it doesnt rust during the week

Looks better than it did though (rusty) - that's a good thing.

How did you apply the filler? Used a proper filler plastic swipe action? That'll help get a better finish if you re-do it (i.e. less streaky)
