Default Applying filler over a curved area

I am trying to fix the low spots on my roof where the 1/4 meets it and whats the best way to get the shape in there? Any ideas?

Are you talking at the body seam?

If so.
Apply the first coat length wise, to fill the seam.
Sand at a 45 degree angle, let the sanding block follow the curvature of the panels.

If need be, apply the second coat of filler "up & down".
Once again sand diagonally.

I've never been a fan of lead.
Since if you have a water leak, it will rot out the metal.
because lead is so dense, it wont bulge if there's rust underneath it

you know what marty, that is so true. on mt passanger side i had some rust all around that area except for like a piece, which i think is lead. i guess water got threw and it rotted a bit. will dp 90 protect the metal for like a year or 2? cuz i want to have my car dipped and stripped again after i got all the new metal work done. and i was gonna give it 2 coats of dp90 and do mods then body ork and apint. what do ya think?
