you get it filled in, that bondo's going to crack on you pretty soon, and then say bye bye to the expensive candy paint job

if its a 1st gen I say don't fill it in......the lines match the rest of the body lines on the front and back bumper and fenders. I took mine off the other day car looks better IMO

i am at the final stages of getting my car all shaved.....you want to weld in sheet metal into those moldings so they are strong......then fiberglass and body filler.......just glass and body filler there is a chance of cracking
