Default Im pissed.

I purchased a used fender a few months ago and finally got around to stripping it so I can prep and paint it.
I grabbed a can of jet-strip and laid it on thick . I came back and found a huge spot of bondo/body filler at the front of the wheel well.
I finished stripping it and then sanded it to finish up.
Now my question is...I have some red body glaze in the garage and was wondering if I could use this to smooth out the area or will I need some actual bondo/filler?
Thanks.

Although you can find them on EBAY - I went with DAMRON (LKQ) Auto Parts (salvage) over here (I think they are nationwide). They got me a Passenger Door (loaded) and the new fender for $350 ~ DELIVERED! - The fender was $100 and the door was $250.
Too COOL!!!!!!!!!!!

They are 100...but then it is another 100 in shipping :(

I checked out the LKQ website and they dont have any fenders at the 5 locations they have in Texas...

I guess I'll just finish working on this one.
Thanks for the help.
