Kinda hard to get pics due to a lack of room in my dining room to move around.
Any thoughts on the bracing

that is not necessarily true as bodymen have been known to fill dents with bondo, it is true that a product called nitrostand was meant to fill scratches and imperfections up to 1/16th inch thick which is essentially a glazing putty... bondo that is improperly mixed or applied could crack easier if it is put on heavier, such as 1/4 inch on up... people who Build custom fiberglass enclosure have also been known to incorporate the use of bondo to finish out nice curvatures and shapes... in my experiences it is safe up to a 1/4 inch at least...
