E21 316: Big bonnet dent filled.

This ding in the bonnet was from a dropped tool by the look of it and this pic doesn't really give an impression of how far the metal was pushed down.
The rub-down showed an area of of about 2" round that needed filling. A nasty drop whatever it was.
It took one big fillet of P38, a lot of rubbing with a flat-block, a quick coat of filler-primer and two quick skims of filler to eliminate pitting.
The final skim was then rubbed well flat with P600 Wet/Dry paper.
This was the worst bit of damage on the 316 and something that everyone noticed - I'm glad it's been put to bed.
