    I hav these holes on the side of the body where the trim clips went that are about the size of a dime or penny. I tried to reach the holes from the inside to put a backing over the hole so that I could putty up the hole, but cannot reach most of the hole due to no access. Any ideas on how I could fill these holes in?

    Weld them. Do a small mount of weldig then let it cool down to avoid warping the panel. Bondo will never stay in place if you try to putty a hole.

    I used reinforced Bondo-glass.

    Has worked well now for over five years (maybe six).
