After 20 odd hours of filling and sanding I decided it was time to try a coat of primer to see just how imperfect things were.
Still quite a bit more work to do of course but things are looking not too bad on the top and upper sides plus the lower front half.
I've used nearly a whole 4kg tin of filler (and sanded most of it off again) to get to this stage.
After 'flatting off' the primer it's easy to see the low and high points that need attention. I've also bought some guide coat paint which is black and will use that next I think as it shows where low points are even clearer than the grey primer does.
Just got to keep plugging away at the plug till it's perfect. :)

|I've painted the spinner too so it's easier to visualise the whole thing together.|
