    I'm going to be filling in some holes on my trunk lid/fenders (removing stock spoiler). And will more than likely be using a spray can to touch up the spots that we welded/grinded down to fill in the holes.
    What steps should I take (sanding, clear coat, polishing) should I take to make sure it looks half decent, blends in with the rest of the paint afterwards?

    It's a black 96 eagle talon btw.

    Is all the bodywork nice and smooth already?

    If everything's smooth and ready.. I'd sand down the entire panel, mask everything else off, and respray the whole thing if you want it to look halfway decent. Leave blending to the pro's.

    Sand everything down, degrease the panel, and respray. :wavey:

    That's just the basics, other guys on here could probably get real technical :noes:
