good work mate, are you using a long block to sand down with, if not get a long piece of wood about 18 inches long by 3 inches and wrap some p40 round it, rub down using long strokes up and down and side to side across the whole length of the filler, get what i mean, its much easier to get it flat this way.

It's three small dents merged into one, so it looks bigish.
