It would be a very subtle change that most people wont notice. But hard core Bonneville people will. Bondo hair would be a better choice then just Bondo. Be sure to rough up the surface to give it something to hold on to.

Bondo hair is like fiber glass. It'* a type of Bondo with glass fiber in it. It'* good for filling areas in. Sanding is going to be a pain. You need to fill in the lows to make it all even. I have several different sanding blocks. Long blocks will give you a flatter surface. To make it look good your going to be doing a lot of sanding. here'* what I use. 80 grit to rough sand with a DA sander. Then I switch to 120 grit with hand blocks. Then 240 with hand blocks. For large areas I have a long block air sander. Paint with epoxy sandable primer. Then sand with 400 grit. Then paint only when it'* smooth. If not even very small defects will show up.
