bunch of little dings

I'm gonna smooth over the car at some point. But there's a bunch of little dings on the body like some one parked it on a golf coarse. My question is with all these small dents do I have to screw in and pop them out. Or should I just mud right over them

Re: bunch of little dings

i have the same problem right now, go to a junk yard and get a panel off a random car and practice, its not as easy as it looks, ive tried filling dents and am seeing the lines around it after i paint,

Re: bunch of little dings

Are you seeing lines cause you filled it with mud and didn't smooth that out well enough?

Re: bunch of little dings
